Jungle Carpet Python
(Morelia spilota cheynei)
These gorgeous snakes are nocturnal, meaning they do most of their hunting or movements at night.
Temperatures: 75°F on the cold side to 92° on the warm side
Food: Mice, rats, chicks and quail are good feed choices… They prefer mice, but getting your Carpet on rats will be a good choice! You’ll have more time between feedings since rats have more nutrients for your whole food eaters.
Substrate: newspaper, papertowel, cypress and aspen are ideal. Nothing overly moist.
Adult size: 5-7ft.
