The Burmese python is one of the largest of all snakes, growing up to 25 feet, usually 20 and weighing up to 190 pounds.
Adult males weigh 10-20 lbs, females are slightly smaller. Dense fluffy fur keeps these animals cool in hot temperatures, and also presents a larger image to predators.
This species is found in south-east Asia, particularly on the Nicobar islands to New Guinea, and as far north as the Philippines.
The Great Argus is native to the Malay Peninsula, Borneo and Sumatra. It inhabits woodland, deciduous forests, tropical rain forest and grassy areas.
