Safe and Sound: 3 Pythons Find a Place to Incubate Their Eggs

3 pythons and their eggs in a compost bin

Our snake catcher Bryce removed 3 Pythons and their eggs from a single compost bin

Coastal Carpet Pythons incubate their eggs by coiling around them to keep them at an optimal temperature. The client’s compost bin remained warm and humid enough to be attractive to three female pythons at once!

Our catcher Bryce relocated the mother pythons and the remainder of the eggs were artificially incubated, with the hatchlings released into the wild some weeks later.

Once hatched, snakes are totally independent and make their way out into the world, hopefully to one day reach a maximum adult size of around three metres!
