Bredl’s Python

Also known as the Centralian Carpet Python, this is a medium sized carpet python of up to 2m long, although they are usually a little smaller than this. If gently handled regularly, they can become a calm and docile pet.

We are working towards improving the welfare of every pet reptile, which is why our expectations are so much higher than those of some other retailers and breeders. You want a healthy, happy pet and we know that our python habitats are a great way to achieve that! Please read our article on minimum standards (see the link in the main description below) to see why our habitats are the most effective on the market.

Our animals are only available for collection in store. Speak to our care team, or visit us in-store to purchase your new pet.

Please read about our minimum standards and why we use them – it’s really important!

Housing Your Bredl’s Python

We recommend that all Pythons are kept in wooden vivariums as they are better insulated than plastic or glass ones. For hatchlings, we recommend a 36-inch long vivarium, then upgrading to a 48-inch or larger vivarium once they reach adulthood. As Bredl’s like to climb, they should be kept in a vivarium that is a little taller than standard. Fix branches securely so that the snake is in no danger of falling.

Feeding the Bredl’s Python

One defrosted mouse or rat should be fed to hatchlings on a weekly basis. As your python matures, you can then start feeding it fortnightly instead. Any food given to your python should be no bigger than the largest part of the body. All food should be defrosted in a refrigerator overnight, then brought up to room temperature before being offered to your snake either in tongs, or left in the vivarium for the snake to find.

Maintenance the Bredl’s Python

Enclosures should be cleaned regularly, removing any waste as soon as possible. Regularly clean the enclosure, water bowl and all cage furniture with a reptile safe disinfectant.
