Python is easily recognizable due to fireworks typically big . Family python ( pythonidae ) relatively easily distinguished from other snakes to see its dorsal scales growing over 45 series , as well as scales ventralnya narrower than the width of the bottom side of his body . In the western part of Indonesia , there are five species : three species , namely short stature overweight group peraca snake ( python Curtus group : p . Curtus , p . Brongersmai and p . Breitensteini ) in Sumatra , Borneo and the Malay Peninsula .
Two other species are relatively long -bodied , muscular solid : P. molurus ( python bodo ) and P. Reticulatus . Both spread from Asia to the large Sunda , Java counted . P. molurus has a tread pattern that is not the same from reticulatus , even so there is a large dark colored v pattern on his head . Python development has great circles pattern in the form of nets ( reticula , nets ) , composed of the colors black , brown , yellow and white for the dorsal aspect of her body. The thick black line is not way above the head of the snout to the nape , resembling being the dividing line either side of the head with two symmetrical . As well as each of the other black lines over thin not exist in every facet of the head , through the eye to the rear .
Pythons are the largest snake flower count and the longest in the world . The Guinness Book Of World Records th . 1991 flowers have long noted python 32 feet 9 . 5 inches ( approximately 10 mtr . ) Being the longest snake ( Murphy and Henderson 1997) . But that is commonly found snakes measuring 5-8 mtr .. However, the optimal weight is 158 kg recorded ( 347 . 6 lbs ) . Python snake countless long-lived , until becoming over 25 years old .. female snakes have a greater body . When the males have started mating on body length of approximately 7-9 feet , the new females at approximately 11 feet long . Manifested at the age of sexual maturity at 2-4 years .
Python Snakes Habitat and Food
Pythons live flowers can be found in the tropical forests of the humid ( Mattison , 1999) . This snake is dependent on the availability of water , so often found not far from water bodies like rivers , ponds and swamps . The main food is small mammals , birds and other reptiles like lizards . Snakes that prey on small frogs , lizards and fish . Large snakes are reported to prey on dogs , monkeys , jungle pigs , deer , let alone a man who ' strayed ' into place awaits prey ( Mattison in 1999 , Murphy And Henderson in 1997 , Shine Et Al in 1999 ) . This snake would rather wait than to actively hunt , probably due to its large size using a lot of power . Paralyzed prey with hard melilitnya ( constricting ) suffocated to death . Most of the bones in the chest circumference and hip fractures might cause it . After the death of prey swallowed whole starting from his head . After eating , especially after swallowing large prey , the snake can fast several days until most bln . Until he was hungry again . A python is maintained in regent 's park at th . 1926 dismissed to eat throughout the 23 months . , But after that he was back to normal ( Murphy And Henderson , 1997 ) .
Flower breeding pythons

Flower pythons mating season runs until september march on in asia . Decreased daylight hours and the reduced temperature is the driving factor that stimulates the breeding season . But so , this season can vary from one area to another . Shine et al . 1999 gain that python fireworks at approximately Palembang , South Sumatra , spawn in September - October ; moment at approximately field , North Sumatra on all purchases . April- May . Males or females can be fast in the breeding season , up to about the size of the body so that the absolute here . Females especially can continue fasting until the spawn , and very probably also to egg hatch ( McCurley , 1999 ) . Python lay flowers at approximately 10 to 100 grains . These eggs ' incubation ' at a temperature of 88-90 ° F ( 31-32 ° C ) during 80-90 days , let alone be getting over 100 days . Female snake can round these eggs while contracting . This muscle movement causes heat to increase the temperature of the eggs most degrees above ambient temperature . Females can protect their eggs from predators until they hatch . But only until the course ; thus hatched , the babies were abandoned snake and handed over to the fate of nature .
