Calabar Python grows to no more than 1 m (39 inches) in total length. Calabaria reinhardtii is found in the rainforests of West Africa, from Senegal to the Congo Basin. It is a terrestrial snake that feeds on small mammals and reptiles. This species is named after Danish zoologist Theodore Reinhardt, who described it in 1867. It is also known as the African python, the Congo python, or Congo brown water snake.
There are a few reasons that make Calabar pythons great pets. They are relatively small compared to other python species, so they don't need as much space. They are also very docile snakes and are not known to be aggressive.
Another plus is that they come from a hot and humid climate, so they do not need special heating or lighting in their enclosure. Calabar pythons will be happy if they have a warm place to hide and a water bowl.
Lastly, Calabar pythons are charming snakes. They have a glossy black skin with light brown markings that resemble tiger stripes. This combination makes them one of the most striking pythons to look at.
