Tight place: the Burmese pythons are known to be 23 meters long and to grow canals as large as telephone poles
Burmese pythons are among the largest snakes on earth, and they are known to grow to be 23 feet or more. They can weigh up to 200 pounds with webbing the size of telephone poles.
The snakes start their lives mainly as the inhabitants of trees. However, as they grow into adult adults, they become land dwellers. They are naturally excellent swimmers, sometimes able to stay under water for so long after 30 minutes.
Burmese constrictors largely feed on small mammals and birds. In poor visibility, they rely on chemical receptors in their tongues and on heat sensors in their jaws to track their prey.
They catch the prey with their teeth, wrap their bodies around the victim in a deadly pinch to choke.
