Reticulated Python

Reticulated pythons are similar in size and shape to Burmese pythons but have a netlike pattern of black, yellow and white on a gray background. The gray areas are often described as a diamond pattern. This species is seldom seen in the wild. It commonly exceeds 12 feet in captivity; the Pittsburgh zoo had a specimen over 28 feet long.

FWC Facts:
Freshwater fish have a series of sensory pores called the lateral line that detect movement and vibration in the water, which helps with predatory and schooling behavior.
