"Aspidites"

Aspidites. (2009, December 24). In Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia. Retrieved 18:15, January 2, 2010, from http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Aspidites&oldid=333762735

Aspidites is a genus of pythons found in Australia. The name can be translated as "shield bearer" and pertains to their two symmetrically shaped head scales. Currently, two species are recognized.[2]

These snakes lack the heat sensitive pits between the labial scales that most other python species have. The head is narrow and the eyes have round pupils.

Found in Australia except in the south of the country.[1]

Both species are nocturnal.[3]

Oviparous. The females stay with their eggs until they hatch.

*) Not including the nominate subspecies. T) Type species.[1]

Two new subspecies. A. ramsayi panoptes, the western woma python, and A. r. richardjonesii, the desert woma python, were described by Hoser (2001).[4] However, these descriptions are questionable, as they do not include proper diagnoses and seem to be based only on distribution.[5] [4]
