Morelia spilota spilota - Diamond Python
Morelia spilota spilota, commonly known as the Diamond Python, inhabit the east coast of Australia between the north-eastern corner of Victoria and an area approximately 185 miles north of Sydney. In this wooded and bouldery habitat, the Diamond Python is the southermost living Python in the world. Given that they can be found in densely populated areas around Sydney, they also live in and around buildings like summerhouses or garrets. It´s not unusual to discover a Diamond Python in the backyard!
There are two variations of Diamond Pythons. The spots and marks on the primary black corpus can be yellow or white. With an average size of 7ft and their calm temperament they are easy to handle and therefore very popular snakes in captivity. Due to the different and sometimes challenging husbandry conditions, it´s not necessarily suitable for beginners.
