Hatching of Indian pythons
9 Indian pythons (Python molurus molurus) have hatched at the vivarium after 75 days of incubation.
The eggs laid by our snakes and tortoises are systematically placed in incubators to enable them to develop under appropriate conditions. The newborns have been put in terrariums on the first floor of the vivarium to make sure they are eating properly.
The Indian python belongs to the Boidae family. It is one of the world’s largest snake after the reticulated python and the anaconda: it can reach a length of 7 meters!
It doesn’t inject venom but bites its prey, then rolls itself around it and strangles it by constriction.
