Their base color can range from light brown to dark brown, and they are covered in a variety of markings, including spots, blotches, and stripes.

  • Habitat: Jungle Carpet Pythons are native to the rainforests of New Guinea. They are arboreal snakes, which means that they spend most of their time in trees.
