Reticulated Python

Reticulated pythons are similar in size and shape to Burmese pythons but have a netlike pattern of black, yellow and white on a gray background. The gray areas are often described as a diamond pattern. This species is seldom seen in the wild. It commonly exceeds 12 feet in captivity; the Pittsburgh zoo had a specimen over 28 feet long.
