If you are looking for a different kind of pet, look no further.
Pythons make excellent pets for kids and adults alike - easy to care
for, fun to hold, fascinating to watch.
Our resident snake expert can tell you everything you need to
know about buying and caring for a snake. We have a range of
specialised snake enclosures, food, heated rocks and lights to keep your
snake warm and well.
We usually have two types of snake available. Both species are Kimberley 'locals'.
Pythons grow to around 1m, and are commonly known as "Children's
Pythons". They are native to Broome and a large part of dryland
Australia.They are non-venemous. In the wild they come out at night and
eat frogs, small lizards and mammals. Their body markings vary widely
even within the same region. Stimsons are generally regarded as placid
and become quite used to being handled.
Black Headed Python
The Black Headed Python is found across a range of terrestrial
environments in the warmer tropical and sub-tropical areas of Australia
from the Pilbara to Queensland. The "BHP" as its sometimes called is
easily recognised by its black head and distinctive banding. The black
head of this snake is almost like an in-built solar panel, and in the
wild they have been seen sticking their head out of their burrow to keep
warm! Experienced snake owners love the Black Headed Python for its
curiosity and interest in the world around them. In the wild their diet
consists of mainly reptiles, but also small mammals.
