About this product
- DescriptionThe reticulated python is the world's longest snake. Growing up to 33 feet (10 m) long, it is roughly the same length as two cars! This super-sized snake is an excellent hunter and uses its size to its advantage. To sense if prey is near, a python flicks its tongue in and out, picking up any scent that is in the air. After finding an animal to eat, the python bites the victim and wraps its long body around the animal, squeezing it until the victim cant breathe anymore and dies. Once the animal is dead, the python swallows its prey whole, eating the victim in one gulp. The snake's long body will stretch to make room for a meal of any size. In Reticulated Python: The Worlds Longest Snake, large color photos and grade-appropriate text will engage young readers as they learn about the natural habitat, physical characteristics, diet, life cycle, and behavior of this giant snake. A comparison diagram is also included to show readers the animal in relation to a familiar object.
