About this book

Language: English

Carpet pythons not only rank amongst the most attractive pythons in general, but they also present the reptile lover with a natural variety of appearances that is second to none. Marc Mense has been keeping and breeding various carpet pythons for many years. In Carpet Pythons, he introduces to you all subspecies of Morelia spilota (carpet pythons, incl. the diamond python), Morelia bredli (Bredl's python), and the roughscaled python (M. carinata) with detailed portraits. He describes how they live in the wild, and provides an easy-to-follow guide to how to keep them properly in a terrarium.
