A brief introduction to the species will be inserted here ..... coming soon! In the interim we have a number of links on the species, listed on this page.

 




 
Captive Care
Blood Python (Python curtus) - Whozoo

A blood python living in its natural habitat will spend most of its time underwater. While submerged in a river or stream, the blood python waits for its meal to cross its path. Python curtus would then stalk the targeted prey and ambush it. This aggressive characteristic is evident in other behaviors of the blood python.

Borneo Blood Python - by Kestrel

General Info The Borneo Blood Python, Python curtus breitensteini, is a medium sized but bulky python found in Borneo. They have a reputation of being pretty fiesty and unhandlable, but this depends on the individual. If you buy a baby, and raise it with a good amount of handling and care, you'll end up with a snake which is very easy to handle. But sometimes even with a good amount of handling, the snake will still be pretty nippy and nervous.

Sumatran \ Malaysian Blood Python - NERD

Distribution This Indonesian species is found in palm plantations, tropical forests and marshes in the Malaysian peninsula, eastern Sumatra and outlying islands. Wild Status Widespread throughout their range but diminishing in numbers, blood pythons are extensively exploited in the skin trade, and large numbers are slaughtered for their meat & hides. Over 60,000 blood & short-tailed python skins are harvested each year, a grim and sickening fact.

Please browse my site and you will see all the "mutations" and "projects" I am working on. It is so exiting to have so many unproven projects to work with, and the thrill of the hunt when trying to locate the next "New Morph" in Africa! There is nothing better than hatching out surprises! I hope you enjoy my site and I thank you for showing interest in my animals.

Pro Exotics Inc. - Blood Python article ex Reptiles Magazine

Blood Python article courtesy of Reptiles Magazine, January 2003 by Robyn Markland- Pro Exotics Reptiles I used to be scared of the Bloods. Back in my early days (1993, not exactly an "old timer") I didn't have a feel for snakes at all, much less the aggressive, nasty, face grabbing, sewer spewing, temperamental Blood pythons! But they were a part of our new collection at Pro Exotics, and Chad Brown, my partner in herps, thought that they were one of the snakes of the future.
