Pythons live near the equator in Africa and Asia, where it is hot and humid, and their huge bodies can remain warm. They make their homes in caves or on trees and are used to living in cities as people moved in on their territory.

Being closer to humans means that snakes not only hunt animals (pigs, goats, dogs, cats, and chickens) but also mean that they can attack people when they feel threatened, although this is rare.

Speaking of feeling threatened, one of the main reasons that pythons kill is for their large, beautiful skins. Some people really like to wear snake trousers, vests, cowboy boots, and boots! which is illegal.


Pythons are a constrictor, which means that they will “squeeze” the life out of their prey. They spiral around their victim and take all the breath the creature will push a little harder until they stop breathing at all. After stopping the heart, predatory swallowed the whole. The whole animal is digested in the stomach of the snake, except fur or feathers.

Along with farm animals, pythons eat wild animals such as lizards, caimans (crocodiles, like small animals), monkeys and antelopes. The larger the meal, the longer it takes to digest. This means that a python can only eat 4-5 times in a year!

Pythons lay eggs and will coil their bodies around the egg to keep them warm and protect them until hatching.
