Western Stimson's Pythons (Antaresia stimsoni
The large-blotched, or
Stimson's python covers a large range across Australia,
comprising two subspecies; an eastern Australian form (A.
s. orientalis) and a Western form (A. s. stimsoni).
Our Western Stimson's pythons were imported from Europe in
2011. The Western Stimson's pythons are areguably the nicest
Antaresia. The pattern usually consists of red blotches on a
light background. The western form is endemic to Western
Australia, although it is difficult to delineate where A. s. stimsoni ends and A. s. orientalis begins,
but the look of the western subspecies is very distinctive.
Stimson's pythons are fairly easy to get started on mice as
babies and the adults are calm and easy to work with. These
are definitely one of the prize projects of the AAR
