Adult females average 12 to 20 feet and 80 to 250 pounds. Mating of the reticulated python occurs from early September through early December. Eggs are laid from mid-December through mid-March The reticulated python eggs require 95-100 days to hatch The female Reticulated
Python can have between 25 - 100 eggs at a time. The
mother will coil around the eggs and create muscular
vibrations to raise the temperature of the eggs several
degrees. Location and Diet The Reticulated python is located in southeast asia. The Reticulated Python's diet are birds, mammals
of different sizes including deer and pigs and very rare
