Python Sumatra Blood Health Information

Sumatran Blood Pythons should be kept at tropical temperatures and humididty levels. Sumatra Blood Pythons are prone to respiratory infections if the humidity or temperature are not suitable for it. They will be shown as fluid in the mouth and nostrils of the snake, who will have an open, gaping mouth. Dry sheds due to inappropriate temperature and humidity or illness and stress are also a problem. Provide a very large dish of fresh water at all times, as these snakes need to soak in addition to drinking.

Be warned that they might be picky eaters; some of them will only eat with the lights out and some of them have to "hunt" their prey first, although it is best to feed them killed, frozen prey to avoid injury or parasite infection to your snake.

These snakes become mature very fast and take a mate within the first three years of their lives, usually after they have grown past four feet or so. They breed during the winter months when in captivity. They need to be left alone during this period; do not feed them. Before you breed your pythons, make sure they are of proper size and weight for their age; anything less will make for bad offspring. If you want to breed them, try spraying them lightly with water and cutting daylight hours down to about nine hours average per day. Keep the temperature in the cage at around 90 degrees when they are incubating the eggs, and give them a solid two months to hatch. Blood Pythons produce massive clutches of eggs, that can yield up to 30 babies at once. Generally 8 to 30 eggs are laid.
