Charlie The Burmese Python
3 December 2004NAME: Charlie SPECIES: Burmese Python (Molurus bivittatus) AGE: 14
Charlie is a beautiful female Burmese Python that has just entered into our breeding program to hopefully fain Australia Zoo some more of these fabulous snakes. You may have seen the Burmese Pythons in and around the Zoo being used for things like snake photos. Due to their beautiful and gentle nature they are the perfect snake for people to get up close and personal with, however with their ever growing popularity we need more snakes! This is a great thing to see as finally people are seeing snakes as beautiful creatures – Charlie's friends are sure doing a great job spreading the word. So make sure if you're in the Zoo stop in at one of the photo sessions and say hi to Charlie's brothers and sisters to experience the majesty of these amazing reptiles.
