||Marble Borneo Short-tail Python|
||Farmington, Illinois, USA|
my name is Charles, and this is Lady Deathstrike. Borneo Pythons
get between four to six feet long and can weigh over twenty pounds. They
are cousins of the Blood Python. So they are a short, but super fat snake.
Borneos tend to be more mellow than Blood Pythons. What makes her a Marble
and makes her special is the marking on her side towards her belly. They
are white with black spots. Marble is a pattern morph. On a regular Borneo
they are a solid pattern.
She got her name because she is so fast when she strikes at her food. When
food's not around, though, she's a big sweet heart. Borneos make great
pets, but aren't a beginners snake. They come in many different color and
pattern morphs. Borneos and Blood Pythons both get a bad rap of being
aggressive. With a little work as babies, they calm down right down and
make great pets.
I have been keeping snakes (boas and python) for over nineteen years. I had one
years ago and it was of one of my favorite snakes. When he died, I always
said I wanted another one. Then one day I came across some beautiful
Marble Borneos for sale and ordered one. Lady Deathstrike was the beauty
they sent me. She is a great snake.
