Burmese Python (Python molurus bivittatus)
One of the world's largest snakes, the Burmese Python lives in the trees and rivers of tropic and subtropic South and Southeast Asia. The Burmese Python is threatened by demand from the pet trade and for their skins from the fashion industry. These slithering predators help maintain the balance of prey species in rivers and rainforests.
Burmese Pythons grow quickly and do not make suitable or safe pets. Their accidental introduction into the Florida Everglades has created an invasive pest, disturbing ecosystem balances and lives of endemic species.
