  1. Hi Vern.. I have just been given a rather chubby Blood Python… gorgeous!! Thing is, it was caught here on Koh Samui island! It is about 1 metre long, and is definitely a ‘short tailed’ python. Are they moving north then? I will be keeping this one for a while i think.. absolutely beautiful snake.

    1. Hi Alan,

      Is this the same Alan I talked with on Samui before? I can’t remember if the blood pythons are native over there or not. I guess you finding one means = yes, they are!

      Where was it found exactly? What sort of environment? Any photos or videos?
