Are you considering a pet snake? The Burmese Python is an excellent reptile for both first time snake owners or for the veteran reptile enthusiast alike. The Burmese Python are originally from the forests Burma, Thailand and Vietnam.

The Burmese Pythons are relatively easy to manage, handle and in most cases, easy to train which makes them the most suitable of the large snakes as a pet. For many people, the Burmese Python remain their favourite of the species.

We can’t argue the popularity of the Burmese Python, but you will need space to properly house one. It’s not uncommon to require about thirty feet of space once the python has become about 10 feet long. It can also live fifteen years or more when cared for properly.

The Burmese Python is without question, one of the largest snakes you can own, but it also known to be one of the easiest and friendly of the python family, right next to the ball python. Treat this species with the understanding and respect it deserves and you will not have any issues with their temperament. Once this snake is fully grown, you will need some assistance handling your python. Do not try handling it alone because it is simply heavy.

Its essential that you don’t become lax with you attention as the Burmese Pythons have a limited ability to reason. Never suddenly grab your snake without it watching you as it will think of food before it realizes its your hand in their mouth or your arm the are wrapping around. Be sure to tap them on the nose with a snake stick so they know it’s feeding time.

Your python diet, when young will eat small mice and rats. When they are adults, they should be fed rabbits and chickens. As a general feeding rule a meal should produce a noticeable lump in the python, but it should in no way make it awkward in width. In between feedings, smaller prey can be fed to your python.

Your snake will understand if there is food in there enclosure, only if it’s moving, it must also be warmer then the immediate surroundings and best if the prey smells like food. Keeping live stock around for your snake is difficult, to Pre-killed food is the best option.

Pythons can take up to three years for the Burmese to become mature. However, once you have a mater male and female, place them in the same enclosure and lower the basking temperature to room temperatures. Once you know that your snakes have mated, or after about a week, they should be separated to help prevent injury.

After a while a female Burmese can lay anywhere from twenty five to forty eggs. Provide a lay box for the eggs so that they do not break. They lay box should be large enough for the female to fit inside and should be filled with vermiculite and dirt.

Your female python will incubate the eggs and return the basking spot to normal with the lay box under the bulb. You can also artificially incubate them 88F for two months. Be sure to keep the lay box moist so the eggs don’t dry out. During this process the female will reduce it’s eating habits.

Similar to adult care, for the exception that everything is reduced in size. Hatchings can start out in a simple ten gallon enclosure, eating small mice, but there growth rate will be astounding.

As youngsters, Burmese pythons will need to eat once every four or five days and when they are young they will grow exponentially, along with their prey size. Once they are about nine to ten feet, Burmese pythons should be eating full sized chickens and rabbits. When they are young its fine to feed them multiple items in a feeding. Another item to keep in mind is that the more you feed your snake, the quickly it will gow, but do not starve it to in order to get a smaller snake.

Smaller Burmese Pythons will do fine in a small ten gallon tank for a while. However, once your Burmese python reaches adulthood, it will need floor space of about thirty square feet. Enclosures of this size are very expensive. As a result, most owners decide to build their own. If you choose to follow this path, ensure your structure is strong and that the front has be made of plexi glass so your snake is clearly visible. Ventilation is also important and you should consider your caging options.

A simple substrate like paper towels or newspaper works best because of the size of the enclosure. If you want a more natural substrate, wood shavings should be used, but they will smell and replacing so much is an unnecessary pain.

At the opposite ends of cage, provide your python with hide boxes. These hide boxes don’t have to be fancy but should be snug, comfortable fit for your python. Your snake will need someplace dark so your python has someplace to go when it feels stressed or vulnerable.

Basking is important for your reptile so be sure the basking spot is at least eighty five degrees Fahrenheit. The rest of the cage can be at room temperature. Ensure you ambient temperature does not rise too high or your snake may suffer from stress and can die from heat exhaustion. Its better for the temperature to be a little low than too high. Heating the enclosure is best accomplished with a heat build. Leave a thermostat in the at the basking spot and on the opposite end of the ensure so you can conveniently check the temperature at anytime.

Water and humidity are both important for your snake as they are from rainforest-like habitats. Your enclosure needs to be at sixty percent humidity for a period of time, each day. Ensure you allow the cage to dry out to prevent any growth of bacteria and mould. Too much humidity can also cause lung problems in the snake. Mist the enclosure once a day as this will help simulate habitat surroundings for your snake.
