Happy Chinese New Year! It's the Year of the Snake! This is Charlie, our 9 ft albino Burmese Python. These beautiful creatures are native to Southeast Asia and can grow to be over 12 feet long, and have been found as long as 19 feet! Snakes are a crucial part of our ecosystem, keeping down rodent populations while their eggs provide food for bird and other predators. They've become an invasive species though, especially in Southern Florida, so if you are considering one for a pet, please also think about what a commitment it can be!
