The Cycle

Artist's Description

The carpet python has a noticeably robust body and large head. Unlike its close relative, the diamond python, the colour and pattern vary greatly, as indicated by its scientific subspecies name, variegata. They range from pale to dark brown and olive green to grey or reddish with darker blotches.
Carpet pythons feed mainly on mammals and birds. Young snakes initially feed on small lizards until they are large enough to catch and consume small rodents and birds.
