Why we Love Them
These guys and girls are the ideal neighbours! They are keep to them selves most of the time, they make little to no noise, they don’t make much mess and better than that, they get rid of all the pests! They eat the possums and bats that make huge amounts of noise and eat all your mangos or pawpaw. Pythons tend to be relatively calm animals, although some individuals can be cranky, generally they ignore humans and just go about their own business. Unless provoked they are rarely bite. These guys are awesome!
