August's 'Reptile of the Month'

The Australian Jungle Python is one of the most breath takingly beautiful pythons, with vivid gold and black markings. For true python lovers they are a must have! They are a realativly small python with a small head that is said to resemble a dragon. 'Jungles' can grow to 1.8m in length in captivity.
Unfortunately Jungles also have a bad reputation for being very snappy, especially when they are younger, but most will grow out of this. What we have to remember is that snakes are a cold blooded animal - People, they are never going to love you but they will learn to tolerate you over time!
A renowned snake breeder once told me that the reason Jungles are so snappy is due to the fact that in the wild the young snakes are hunted by very large forest rats, so they snap in defence before asking questions. I know I'd do the same.
Jungle pythons are semi-arboreal and really prefer a nice tall enclosure especially as they mature.
In their enclosure they need a warm spot and a cold spot so that they can more easily thermo-regulate themselves. Generally Jungles will happily live out their life without the need for a UV tube, once they mature and spend more and more time up in the branches they really prefer a nice basking light as opposed to a heat mat.
Even though these snakes are generally from a tropical location they are a very hardy python that will adapt to most situations.
They have a reputation for being fussy eaters. I can't say this of mine as she went straight for pinkie rats, and I have changed back and forwards between rats and mice many times over.
I have been lucky because I was fortunate enough to get my Jungle from one of the best breeders around. My Jungle was already eating everything when I got him and he is such a placid snake, not once has he tried to strike me and from what I have read for a high yellow Jungle this is very rare.
I cannot stress enough that when purchasing reptiles, buy them from someone who knows what they are talking about.
