ANIMAL FACTS - Boas and Pythons

The Diamond Python, like most other snakes, has no colour vision. Some snakes that hunt during the daytime may be able to distinguish between red and green, but their vision is not comparable to other animals.

Crikey - More Animal Facts!

Boas and Pythons are non-venomous snakes that constrict their prey (ie. wrap it in tight coils). Pythons kill their prey by squeezing (constricting) them in tight coils. Their diet mainly consists of birds and mammals. The Reticulated Python is one of the largest snakes in the world, and can reach lengths of over 8m. They are common throughout parts of South-east Asia.
