​​​​Description

these pythons have a long medium build reaching five to six feet in length with a prehensile tail to help in climbing. they go through a massive ontogenetic change within the first few years of life. with the hatchling's starting out silver and grey  then shed by shed becoming amazing yellow and black snakes.  these fantastic snakes are extremely variable in color and pattern but always beautiful.  the high contrast black and yellow is selective breeding at its finest with natural occurring jungles being much more gold and black.​
