Python Indian behavior

The Indian Python is a close relative to the Burmese Python, also a native of India. Although this animal is rarely bred in captivity, as a pet it can become quite docile if handled regularly.
The Indian Python is comfortable in a variety of habitats and will spend its time in trees, traveling on the ground, or swimming in still water. The Indian Python usually feeds on small to medium sized animals, usually mammals about the size of a house cat, although they are capable of taking down much larger animals, such as wild boar. Indian Pythons are useful to humans because they rid urban areas of pets such as mice and rats.

Found primarily in India and Pakistan, the Indian Python's numbers are decreasing rapidly. They are one of the preferred sources of skin for wallets, belts, boots, and more items. While once quite common, because of predation by humans for their skins and meat, as well as for medicinal properties some cultures feel the Python has, the Indian Python is now an endangered animal. Another reason for their decline is the destruction of their native habitat for development because of population expansion of humans. Furthermore, Indian Pythons are often killed by humans, who because of their large size consider the snakes a threat.
