Indian Python

Python molurus

Reaching an average of 9 feet in length, this constrictor can grow to over 100 lbs. Many snakes abandon eggs after laying, but this constrictor is an attentive mother. With her eggs in a pile, she coils around them for 2-3 months to fend off nest-robbing predators until the eggs hatch.
