When it comes to care and feeding a Cow Reticulated Python it is best to choose an adult. How to Differentiate between a Python and Snake

Cow reticulated python

Reticulated Pythons have well formed but reasonably small, though not small by any means, enclosures.  The largest and heaviest we’ve encountered are the dwarf

Feeding them crickets could result in your python becoming aggressive as they prefer the food that is more plentiful than the worm’s they are being fed.

They can weigh up to 500 pounds (226 kg), so if you are bringing one to your home, be prepared to rent a power cage to transport it in safely.

The recommended way to hold a Reticulated python is with a proper grip and/or heavy bag and/or cage, keeping the head of the python tucked under the body of the python.

Have you ever seen a snake with over 8 toes on each foot? Yep, that’s Reticulated Pythons. They’re the world’s longest snakes

The name Reticulated Pythons is used for the distribution of juveniles that did not mature during the breeding season, and were therefore, not “breedable”.

Reticulated Pythons eat cicadas, crickets, locusts, worms, fish, frogs, and various mammals, birds, and small mammals.

There is no published record for a living mature Reticulated Python reaching 30 years of age. The longest living known Reticulated Python died at age 35.
