Angolan Pythons - Harford Reptile Breeding Center, Bel Air

We are dedicated to offering captive bred offspring of Python Anchietae. We have a diverse collection of bloodlines in this species. In addition to Angolans, we have several other python species that we hope to provide offspring from next season.

Description This species is one of a kind in that they are the only Python known in the world to have a body covered in amazing beaded scales.

Don Patterson Pythons and Boas

Angolans have to be one of the most unique and interesting pythons out there. They are covered in beaded scales, come from a climate with harsh extremes, and there is very little information on their natural ecology. One thing for sure is they are hardy and have fantastic appetites.

Doug Taylor - USA

I purchased my first trio of Angolan pythons in 2003. Angolan Pythons are cool creatures. They have beaded scales that feel almost like a Beaded Lizard's skin. Their heads bear a resemblance to Ball Pythons. Angolan pythons get significantly larger than ball pythons. Their patterns and color schemes vary by individual. My own animals range from Gold to Chocolate Brown background and Black and Yellow patterns.

This is one of the rarest and most unique pythons in the world. Adults average 5 feet in length but may grow to seven feet. These pythons are covered in small, rounded, bead-like scales. We have the most diversified group held in captivity. This is our ninth straight year of producing these amazing pythons and have produced more captive-bred babies than any other facility in the world. We have several unrelated gravid females and babies are expected in July 2006.


Coming from Western Africa, the Angolan Python is by far one of the most rare Pythons in captivity. Sometimes commanding prices in the multiple thousands, Angolan Pythons are found in a only a small number of breeder's collections in the United States. The Angolan Python is truely a beautiful snake, also possessing a unique scale formation, giving it a beaded feeling when touched. Recently becoming more popular, the Angolan Python has been crossed by N.E.R.D. with its resembling cousin the Ball Python, producing the Angolan Ball.

Angolan Python (Python anchietae) A relict specie pushed into a small and fragile habitat in southwestern Africa by the encroaching Saharan Desert, these are one of the rarest pythons in captivity. Usually matures at under five feet in length. Unique among pythons in having raised conical scales, they bear a resemblance to the closely related Ball Python. We are fortunate to have assembled a genetically diverse group from six different bloodlines. Status: Regular breeders, starting in 2004.


Inland Reptile

Angolan Pythons inhabit parts of Angola and Namibia. For years this was one of the rarest pythons in captivity due to a lack of imports available to the pet trade.

Selective Origins - Kentucky (KY)

Angolan Pythons (Python anchietae)- The Angolan python is still one of the world's rarest and unique pythons. They range from Angola through Namibia and are about impossible to get due to those nations political turmoil and instability. Angolans average about 5 feet in length, but can get up to 7 feet. They are stocky and powerful snakes with raised, beaded scales. A characteristic completely unique to these pythons. Many people make the incorrect assumption that these are going to be very Ball Python-like. Angolans are snakes all of their own and offer eager, consistent feeding and lots of personality and activity in the cage.


We have many other species documented in similar fashion which are listed on our home page, in the 8. Links - Species Specific section.
