The Diamond Python has a relatively mild temperament. They are a non-venomous snake, and they use their awesome constricting powers to kill their prey. Diamond Pythons spend most of their time in trees, but they do spend some time on the ground, especially to bask. Diamond Pythons should be kept in large habitats with plenty of vegetation and large branches for the snake to climb in. There should also be dark hiding places, as the Diamond Python is a nocturnal creature.
The Diamond Python is a magnificent snake. At maturity, they reach a size from six to nine feet. Their body color is a shiny dark green to black. As the name implies, Diamond Pythons have a diamond pattern, which runs down their body. This pattern is formed by cream to yellow colored scales on their body.
The Diamond Python, or the Morelia spilota, is found in Australia, from Victoria to New South Wales. They are mostly found in heavy tropical forested areas. They are accustomed to a much cooler climate than most pythons.
