Male Platinum het Foulsham Caramel Super Dwarf Reticulated Python CB18
Reticulated Pythons are one of the largest species of snake in the world with record lengths reaching up to 24 feet. This is extremely large for a reticulated python, we prefer to keep our females around 16-18 feet and our males around 7-9 feet at adult size. Size of reticulated pythons can be managed with a sensible feeding schedule which prevents over-feeding causing extremely large sizes and often over weight snakes, which can cause health problems, so we recommend small and often. For information about feeding, please contact us.
Super dwarf reticulated pythons generally become smaller as adults than mainland or dwarf retics. This makes them extremely desirable to keepers who do not have room for a larger snake. What makes super dwarf retics smaller, is that they originate from areas in the wild with less food available than that of mainlands and dwarfs. Over time super dwarf retics have adapted to their available food source and do not grow as large.
There are a number of genetic lines now bread into super dwarf retics meaning that some of the morphs, colours and patterns that were not available previously are now on the market. This also means that mainland and dwarf genetics have been bred into bloodlines allowing the genetics to be mixed with super dwarf blood. Pure super dwarfs are still available, these are naturally occurring morphs in the wild, and are still largely bred across the globe.
