Pythons are a family of non-venomous snakes that are native to Africa, Asia and Australia. Pythons are ambush predators that use constriction to kill their prey. Unlike female boas, female pythons lay eggs. Pythons are hunted for their skin, which is used, like leather, to make shoes, handbags and other fashion accessories.

Should i refreeze my ball pythons rats if he doesn't eat it?

No, absolutely not. Just throw them away and try feeding again in a week or two.

Keeping a diary of your snakes feeding schedule would be an ideal way of telling roughly when he is ready to eat again. This cuts down the amount of wasted 'food'. If you thaw, re-freeze and re-thaw food items you run the risk of bacteria buildup in addition to the food item partly decomposing.

What is the largest rattle snake ever found?

It is said that the largest rattlesnake on the planet is the Eastern diamondback. The record length for this venomous snake is 96 inches.

Tim Manning, Herp.

If you "google" "Texas" you will see a man with a 9 ft 1 inch 90 lb rattler.it was at Tow, Texas off hwy 281. Northern tip of Lake Buchanan 2007

The supposed 15 foot Eastern Diamondback rattlesnake was not 15 feet long. It was 7 foot and 3 inches and was found in Sept 2009. The largest Eastern Diamondback rattlesnake on record in 8 feet long. None have been found longer. Skins can be deceptive as they can be longer when shed from the snake.

See the related link for a picture of a 14' Western Diamondback rattler taken in Happy Camp, CA., on the weekend of 9/11/10 by a' good friend of mine.

---------

In Mid July, 2010, a rattlesnake was found near Whitwell, TN that measured:

14ft 9in, 24 rattles, 2 buttons, and 100lbs.

----------

There has never been a rattlesnake over eight feet long anywhere. But, there are many hoaxes. The eight footer was killed in Carteret County, North Carolina, in 1959.

What is the growth and development of ball pythons?

A typical hatch-ling ROYAL PYTHON (it's designated name from it's Latin name of Python Regius) is roughly 6-7 inches long at birth, and typically the diameter of a UK 10p piece at its thickest point.

Hatch-lings will grow fairly quickly during their first two years - attaining 24 inches in their first year, and around 40 inches by the end of their second year. Many of the hatch-lings I've bred are now well over 60 inches long and a diameter of roughly 4 inches at the thickest part of their bodies ! Royal Pythons reach sexual maturity at around three years old - producing typical clutches of 15-25 eggs.

Reticulated pythons grow extremely quickly. If fed properly, they should reach 7-8 ft in their first year, then 10-12 ft in their second year, until they reach their full size. If they are a dwarf or super dwarf version they will grow as quickly early on, but their growth will slow down quicker.
