Kahil, the Pet of the Day
Name: Kahil
Age: Three years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Green Tree Python
Home: Ft. Worth, Texas, USA
 
   I found Kahil at a reptile expo last August. A friend of mine directed me to the table of the person selling him. The current owner explained how he rescued him from a pet store that was not taking care of him properly. The pet store owners realized they were not equipped to care for this type of reptile when they discovered that he was not eating and was covered in mites! Therefore, they relinquished him to the kind man who took the time to deworm him, get rid of the mites, and get him eating.

    Green tree pythons (scientific name Aru Chondro) are very hard to keep in captivity because of their humidity requirements and their naturally aggressive behavior. Kahil is special to me because he is the only Green Tree Python that I can hold and play with! I own many snakes, but he is by far my favorite. He is not just another pretty face.
