Angolan Python - Python anchietae

The Angolan Python or Anchieta's Python is a rare species of python that is normally very hard to get hold of. Fortunately in recent years they have started to pop up for sale a lot more and there are a few breeders in the US, Europe, the UK and quite a few more in South Africa. They are hardy snakes that do very well in captivity. They should not be hurried to grow fast and a slower approach seems to be a better approach than trying to pump them with food. They are docile very much like Ball Pythons and do not get stressed out easily. I enjoy working with this species and I really hope that they will soon become more available so that others can keep them and appreciate them as well. This is the ultimate python for many reptile keepers. Highly recommended.
