The reticulated python (Malayopython reticulatus) is named for the black criss-cross patterns that run the length of this python’s grey, brown and tan body. The specific name, reticulatus, is Latin meaning "net-like", or reticulated, and is a reference to the complex colour pattern. It is a non-venomous constrictor. The world's longest snake, often growing to 20 feet or more, it is an excellent swimmer and has been reported far out at sea and has colonised many small islands within its range. The main predator of the reticulated python is the king cobra (Ophiophagus hannah), which is found in many of the same localities as the reticulated python. The reticulated python is found in South Asia's rain forests, woodlands, and nearby grasslands.
