Malayopython reticulatus — Reticulated Python
Some other names for this species:
Older references call this species Python reticulatus. Also, it was called Broghammerus reticulatus for a while, before the reptile world came to its senses.
Subspecies I've seen:
M. r. reticulatus
Malayopython reticulatus reticulatus — Reticulated Python
Reticulated Pythons grow longer than any other snakes in the world (as far as we know, anyway). But this one, which Kurt spotted swimming in a stream, was just a youngster, maybe four feet long or so. I definitely wouldn't mind seeing a great big one someday, but these young ones are more beautiful.
