Python African Rock Health Information

It is advisable to have another person present when handling African Rock Pythons. Their enclosures should be atleast half as long as these snakes are, and widths should be atleast a third as long as they are. Because of the lengths of mature snakes, you should be prepared to have plenty of room for its enclosure. Daytime temperatures should be 80 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit with a basking area in the low to mid 90s. At night the temperature should be about 75 degrees.

Breeding
Usually, male African Rock Pythons can be bred when they are seven feet long and females when they are nine feet long. The breeding season usually occurs between November and March, and may be simulated by reducing photoperiods to between eight and ten hours. Reduction of daytime temperatures into the low 80 degree Fahrenheit range with a nighttime drop of about ten degrees and regular misting can also help. The female should be introduced into the male's enclosure, and, if impregnated, can produce between 20 and 80 eggs. The female will incubate these eggs, or they can be artificially incubated between 88 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit. The eggs will hatch in about 75 days.
