Ter­ri­tory Wildlife Park, Dar­win

Holiday with Kids - - Animal Encounters -

They are slip­pery, slithery and sen­sa­tional. Ter­ri­tory Wildlife Park is happy to an­nounce the birth of two baby pythons in De­cem­ber 2016. Both baby pythons are de­vel­op­ing well and have started to feast on mince. In the wild, the fe­male snake in­cu­bates her own eggs. She stops hunt­ing and eat­ing just to pro­tect and de­liver her ba­bies, a process that, if done many times, may even be harm­ful to the mother. Talk about the dan­gers of par­ent­ing.
