One of the most beautiful carpet
pythons is the Darwin carpet, Morelia spilota variegata. This
carpet python subspecies, as their name implies, inhabit the
area in the vicinity of Darwin, Northern Territory,
Australia. They are commonly found within the city of
Darwin. On a herping trip to the Darwin area, I was fortunate
enough to find and photograph a wild Darwin Carpet python.
They can be quite feisty, although my captives are reasonably
calm. We acquired a pair of het for albino Darwins as well as
a normal pair of Darwins. Despite the appeal of the albino
Darwins, we really wanted to work with the wild-type look as
well as the albino gene and were fortunate enough to do so
after passing on several cross het albinos. This subspecies is
still quite rare in the US and we are excited to offer normal
appearing Darwin carpet pythons. GET ADDICTED!
