||Eight months old|
||Delta, Ohio, USA|
is a very special Burmese Python. Not only is he an albino, but
Willy was hatched with only one eye. When I first saw him I fell in love
with him. He was about six months old and the owner of the reptile store
wasn't going to sell him because of his handicap. But I couldn't go home
without him so the owner and I worked out a deal and Willy came home
The first few days Willy wasn't the nicest guy. He was scared and cranky
and didn't know what to think about being handled. But I was persistent
and gentle and he has grown to love it. He loves to explore everything.
He likes to rest on my shoulders while I walk around the house or sit
and watch TV.
Having only one eye doesn't effect his ability to hunt and eat. He eats
very well and has no problem catching prey when its offered to him.
Willy will grow to be about 12-15 feet long and probably weigh well
over 100 pounds. Right now he is about two feet long. Having a large
Python is not for everyone. You must plan ahead and be able to
accommodate him for the rest of his life. Snakes are great pets. They
are quiet, pretty clean, and most are easy to take care of as long as
you have done your homework.
Willy shares my home with two Ball Pythons, a Rosy boa, and African House
Snake, two Doberman Pinschers, and an Umbrella Cockatoo.
