|Blood python reproduction
Blood pythons, like most pythons, lay eggs. Blood pythons are snakes with large girth. They are not very long species, with adult mature
females at about 7 feet (records are at 9 to 10 feet), but they can be as thick as many much longer and heavier giant pythons, like the Burmese for example.
Blood pythons can lay few to over 20 eggs at a time. According to literature, there has not been combat between males observed.
Most pythons are considered seasonal breeders, successfuly reproducing after a cooling period in winter.
According to people experienced with keeping them in communal cages in larger groups though, blood pythons can copulate at anytime, resulting in eggs delivered at
various times of the year.
Blood python babies can be nippy and nervous, but settle down with time and handling. Seems like captive bred babies, born from captive
bred and born parents, are particularly tame. There used to be a general opinion of blood pythons being aggressive snakes, but from my experience
of keeping captive bred blood pythons only, they grow into very time and easy going snakes.
