A brief snippet about Spotted python (Antaresia maculosa)

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.


Natural Habitat
Natural Distribution - Reptiles of Australia

Captive Care

Spotted Python's are often kept in captivity (especially America) and are particularly popular within collections throughout the world. This snake seems very hardy and easily adapts to it environment, it has proved to be a very easy and popular snake to keep. Spotted Pythons are often breed in captivity without much problem but despite been so easy to keep and breed Spotted Python's don't seem too commonly available within the UK, which is why I had so much difficulty obtaining an adult male.

Rain Forest - caresheet

A 24" x 18" x 18" vivarium fitted with a Ceramic heater and thermostat is ideal housing for a pair of Spotted Pythons. The ceramic heater should be left on day and night but the thermostat should be turned down by the appropriate temperature at night and back up again in the morning.

ThompsonsDEN - caresheet

Antaresia maculosa Outher Common Names: None in common use, though occasionally this species is incorrectly referred to as a Childrens python (Antaresia childreni), which is of tropical Northern Australia west of Cape York, Queensland, including some offshore islands.
