Burmese Python

The Burmese Python (Python molurus bivittatus) is the largest subspecies of the Indian Python and one of the 6 largest snakes in the world, native to a large variation of tropic and subtropic areas of Southern- and Southeast Asia. They are often found near water and are sometimes semi-aquatic, but can also be found in trees. Wild individuals average 3.7 metres (12 ft) long, but may reach up to 5.74 metres (19 ft).

Some researchers consider Burmese Python to be a full species, Python bivittatus, and this was followed by IUCN when they recently listed Burmese Python as a Vulnerable species.
