Reticulated Python

Malayopython reticulatus

Reticulated pythons are constrictors, meaning they wrap around their prey and squeeze until it’s dead. Using this ability, they can take down and consume prey as large as a small deer or pig. They are also one of the few snakes to incubate their eggs by coiling around them to keep them warm.
