"Python anchietae"

Python anchietae. (2009, July 10). In Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia. Retrieved 07:04, January 5, 2010, from http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Python_anchietae&oldid=301321998

Python anchietae is a non-venomous python species found in Angola and Namibia. A rare species closely related to the royal python, P. regius. No subspecies are currently recognized.[3]

Adults may grow up to 180 cm (6 ft) in length. The color pattern consists of a reddish-brown to brown to almost black ground color overlaid with irregular white or cream colored bands and spots. The belly is yellowish. A rare species seldom seen in the wild or in captivity.[2]

Found in Africa in southern Angola and northern Namibia. The type locality given is "Catumbella [Catumbela]" near Lobito, Angola.[1]

Rocky outcrops or areas strewn with rocks in open brush or grassland.[2]

Diurnal, they shelter in small caves, overhangs and crevices.[2]

The diet consists of small mammals and birds.[2]

Oviparous, with small clutches of 4-5 eggs being produced at a time. It is not known whether the females "incubate" their eggs as is typical for the members of this family. Hatchlings are 43-46 cm (17-18 inches) in length.[2]

According to Broadley (1990), this species is most closely related to the royal python, P. regius, of west Africa.[2]
