Africa's largest snake and one of the largest in the world

This snake is native to sub-Saharan Africa. It is believed that they may be establishing populations in Florida, where, from pet trafficking, they have been released by their owners or have escaped.

It is the largest snake in Africa and one of the largest snakes in the world. It lives mainly on the land, although it can submerge itself in water to hunt.

It is a solitary species that only seeks members of its species during the breeding season. To lay her eggs, the female looks for an unoccupied animal burrow or tree hollow. A clutch may contain 20-50 eggs about the size of a tennis ball and take 2 to 3 months to hatch, during which time the female remains wrapped around the eggs to protect them.
