Python

 
Skip Navigation Links

The reticulated python is truly a giant snake.  A confirmed length of 37 feet makes it the largest species of snake in the world!  Ours isn’t quite that big – ‘only’ 19 feet, but she has a lot of growing left to do.  Her keepers, who have named her Lacey (because of her interwoven pattern and because the Lacey Act is the law that protects pythons from over collection), feed her a large (pre-killed) rabbit every other week. We can expect a growth rate of about a foot a year until she reaches 22 or 23 feet after which her growth rate will slow but never cease.  If she lives long enough, there is the real potential that she will one day break the world record.
