Pythons only eats around four to five times a year?

Depending on the size of their prey, it can take weeks or even months for a python to digest their meal.

Pythons belongs to the family Pythonidae while Boas are from the Boidae family. Snakes from these groups are non-venomous. They are predatory animals, killing their prey by constriction, wrapping their powerful body around their prey until it suffocates and dies.

Although Pythons and Boas share the same biological class and order, they have different ways of producing their young. Pythons produce their young by laying eggs which develop and hatch outside the body. While Boas produce live young which develop inside the body and hatch-out as the eggs are laid.

The Park is home to some of the snakes from these groups. Visit the links below to learn more about them.
