A native of India, Pakistan, Nepal and Indochina.
It is the largest constrictor in India and one of the six largest snakes in the world.
The Burmese python is nocturnal. When small, they live on the ground and in trees, but as they grow, their movements become increasingly restricted to the ground. It is also an excellent swimmer, capable of submerging in water for more than half an hour. In winter, it usually hibernates in a hollow log, under rocks or in holes in the ground, until the end of the season.
The female lays 12 to 36 eggs which she will stay with until the young hatch and once they hatch she will abandon them. The new hatchlings, now without the mother's protection, will stay inside their shell until they have their first skin change and start looking for their first prey.
