It's easy to participate in the Python Pickup Program! Simply email us a photograph and some basic information.

Flat Python

Your photo should be medium to high resolution and clearly show the snake has been killed. It should be taken close enough so that the snake can be identified as a Burmese python.

This is an example of a photo that could be submitted to the Python Pickup Program. It was taken using a Burmese python tanned skin that is used for educational purposes.

Submit your photo by email to

  • Write “Python Pickup” in the subject line
