Apodora Papuana

This is one of my dream species to work with. So when the oppurtunity came I got a pair of CB Papuans! This is a very rare specie to see in captivity, in the wild they are found in New Guinea (Papua Island) hence the name. They get very long, the average length is 4m and weight is about 20kg! Their behavior is similar to Reticulated pythons, very agile, fast and smart snakes. So you should handle them with much respect. They get mature around 5-7 years and little is known about the breeding process. Papuans have one of the most beautiful heads amongst pythons, that’s my opinion. Very large headscales that shimmers in all colours, when you see them in reality you just go wow!
