What is a "python"?


A python is a large, non-venomous snake found in tropical regions of Africa, Asia, and Australia. It is known for its impressive size and strength, with some species capable of reaching lengths of over 20 feet. Pythons have a robust body, covered in scales, and a distinctive pattern that varies between species. They are constrictor snakes, using their powerful muscles to wrap around their prey and suffocate them. Pythons are opportunistic feeders, consuming a wide range of animals including mammals, birds, and reptiles. They are also known for their ability to swallow prey whole due to their highly flexible jaws. Pythons are solitary and primarily active at night. They play a crucial role in their ecosystems as top predators, helping to control populations of their prey species. Despite their intimidating size, pythons are generally not aggressive toward humans unless provoked.
