Native to Southeast Asia, introduced to south Florida
The Burmese Python is one of the largest species of snake. It is tan, yellow/brown, or gray in color with large red blotches that are outlined in a cream to gold color. Eyes and nostrils are set on top of the pyramid-shaped head. The body is long and thin compared to other species of python. Adults grow to an average length of 16 feet and can reach lengths of up to 20 feet. Burmese pythons, like other constrictors, do not have fangs. Instead, they have back curving teeth to hold on to their prey.
