Woma python (Aspidites ramsayi) -

The woma python is distinguished from other Australian pythons by its narrow head which is barely distinct from the neck. It has small eyes, smooth scales, a broad body and a thin tail (2). This species is coloured grey, olive, brown or rich red-brown above, with several darker olive, brown to black cross-bands on the body.

Captive Care
Care by

Womas and Black-headed pythons both belong to the genus Aspidites and differ from all other pythons by the absence of heat sensing labial pits. As mentioned on our Black-headed page, Aspidites translates to "shield-bearer" and is in allusion to the two large scales on the top of their head. Ramsayi was coined after E.P. Ramsay, former curator of the Australian Museum.

Of all the snakes I have owned Womas are my favourite. Beauty, ease of care, small size, and an amazing friendly disposition make them alot of fun to own. My Womas have great colours, with lots of red, orange and yellow.
