These pythons are found in dense humid forests and wetlands in south- eastern Asia, where they feed on small mammals, reptiles and birds. They are mainly active at night and are excellent climbers. Some Burmese pythons can grow up to 8 metres in length, although 6 metres is a more common upper limit.
