  1. Juvenile reticulated pythons are arboreal (tree-dwelling) and terrestrial (ground-dwelling). Adults are seldom found in the trees, usually near lakes, rivers and canals.

    These amazing snake have probably more than 100 recurved, long and sharp teeth. They are aggressive in the wild but if well fed in captivity is usually sluggish and docile.

    Haha… probaby that’s why all the captive boas and retics in zoos aew all lazy and slacking when watched them.
