These massive reptiles inhabit most countries in the India and Vietnam region, and some of the islands and island chains of southeast Asia. This python-type holds the record for longest snake held in captivity, some reaching over 30 feet or 9 meters in length in the wild. Reticulated Pythons are excellent swimmers, often going far from shore if needed, but prefer to stay close to the water as it is their main hunting ground. They have been known to climb trees, though rarely, as they prefer to live on the ground. While not venomous and seldom using their bite to kill, these massive snakes will latch on to pray, then wrap their body around it, slowly constricting its victim to death. They've been known to eat monkeys, pigs, deer, and on occasion, humans. Though the breed is rather timid when kept as pets, we wouldn't want to run into this type of snake in the wild.
