  • 1.2 Savu Pythons

    This awesome trio was just shipped up from Florida to me this week. The two females are three months old and still very defensive; both tried to take a chunk out of me as soon as they were free of the deli cup they were shipped in. The male is a year old, well into his color change from orange to black, quite chilled out and very easily handled. Another part of the color change is that their eyes turn white.

    They reach maturity at around five years of age and can live 20+ years in captivity. Adult females are about five feet long, and males are around four feet long, making them one of the smallest known python species. Their home range is the 60 square mile island of Sawu off the coast of Indonesia. I'm really looking forward to working with these critters.

      These guys are great looking snakes, this is actually the first time I have seen these as babies/youngsters I think. Enjoy!

        Your male reminds me of my Aussie spotted python (mine is actually a granite phase), but she has never tried to bite me. I really enjoy these little pythons, more than I'd have thought...your trio looks totally awesome
        & we'll look forward to your updates on them. Shipping in deli-cups is pretty stressful, can't fault them for coming out "teeth first" LOL.

          LOL no, I can't! Though the two females have settled down a lot. All three ate today, f/t mouse pinkies for the two little girls, and a f/t mouse fuzzy for the boy.

            Off to a good start then! (-eating) Funny how they do such a color change...it must somehow work to their survival at various growth phases?

                  Are Savu Pythons arboreal? or semi-arboreal?

                    I don't believe so, they usually prefer to burrow.

                      Oh okay. They have a body that is similar to tree boas. Or at least they do when they are young. Definitely some beautiful pythons though.

                        Congratulations! I have to admit I don't know much of anything about these guys. They are pretty cool though, keep posting updates on them please?

                          I can't speak for Savu pythons but my Aussie spotted python (which to me, they physically resemble) is clearly semi-arboreal....mine spends much time basking on her branches.
