Making stables

The cage is an important factor when raising pythons because the python is very strong, if it can get through the head, the iron 8-12 will be broken by the python.

The cage can be made of wood, bamboo, iron, trellis … with slots, holes 1-2.5cm wide (depending on the type of python raised) for easy cleaning and not for pythons to come out.

The size of the cage is 0.6-0.7m high, 0.5-0.6m wide, 24m long. With this area, it is possible to keep all kinds of pythons according to the quantity: newborn pythons 0.5kg/head, keep 8-12 children, from 0.7-2kg/body keep 5-7 children, from 2.5-5kg keep 3. -4 children, from 5kg or more, keep 2-3 animals.

Where there are large land conditions, it is advisable to make a barn in combination with a grazing forest garden, with a strong zinc-coated iron mesh fence.

Seed eggs after incubation 53-55 days hatched python seed. Feed them with food: newly hatched chicks, small mice, small quails. About 3-5 days, use live chicks or mice to lure the pythons to eat, pull them up and let them out for the pythons to eat, then catch them and release them into the coop.

Every 3-5 days, feed the baby python once: there is a big python, catch the bait to release to swallow, then eat the second one. The number of feeding increases according to the age of raising, 2 months old feed 2 children. Chickens or small mice, 3 months old can feed 3 small chickens, after 7-10 days without food in the coop, pythons fighting to eat will bite each other, causing pythons to be injured and sick.

There must be a water trough for the python to drink or bathe in water for easy skinning. Normally, you have to clean up the manure in the barn, the amount of feces discharged daily is not much, dry manure, it1 causes a rotten smell, about 5-7 days, drain it1 or take the python to bathe in a water bowl, make the python feel clean and healthy. .

The breed python after 4-5 months is about 0.8m long, so choose to raise it as a meat python.

Farming techniques

  1. Breeding pythons

Baby pythons from 1 month old to 0.5kg, feed once a week, run out of 0.5kg of food in 1 month.

Pythons from 1 to 5 kg feed 2-3 times / month, each time from 1 to 1.5 kg of food.

Pythons from 6-10kg feed 2 times/month, each feeding from 1.5-1.7kg of food.

Pythons over 10kg, feed once every 8-20 days, each time from 3-5kg of food.

In addition, it is also necessary to add vitamins B1, B6, B12, C, A, D, E, PP … mixed into the water for drinking after each python eat or drink directly.

  1. Breeding pythons

Usually pythons live alone. Only during the breeding season do male and female pythons find each other. The breeding season of pythons is from October to January next year. The best mating time is November-December. 1 month before the mating season, feed the female to fullness to have enough nutrients to store fat and create eggs.

Mating python age is 28-30 months old. When female pythons want to mate, they often secrete a specific smell to attract males. At this time, release healthy male pythons of equal or larger weight, they twirling, mating for 1-3 hours. Should give double mating to ensure egg conception and high hatching rate.

Female pythons are pregnant for 120-140 days. During pregnancy, the female python does not feed or feed a little at a time to avoid egg compression.

When preparing to give birth, the cow crawls around in the barn, digs the ground, looks for a low place, has straw and hay to lay. It is possible to make a nest for pythons with a bag of snake carcasses containing rice husks installed in a corner of the cage, a quiet place, avoiding drafts …

Each time the female python lays from 10 to 100 eggs. After laying all the eggs in the nest, the female python curls up on the egg to incubate. When incubating pythons should check a few times, if the eggs are large, white, dry, shiny shells are good eggs; The fruits are too big or too small, the shell is dull yellow… are damaged eggs that must be discarded.

Incubation time 53-55 days to hatch. Baby pythons peck their own eggshells. After 1-2 days, there are weak pythons that do not open their own shells, they must be dropped in warm water to stimulate the baby pythons to come out. Any fruit that has not yet bloomed, we support by tearing the shell 1cm long, finding the baby python’s head gently pulled it out. Newly hatched pythons are 50-60cm long and weigh 80-140g.

After hatching, pythons can live on their own for 3-5 days with the relic mass in the abdomen. After this time, the baby python’s belly collapses, the skin is wrinkled and the first molt. Normal healthy pythons feed 4-5 times/month, weak pythons feed 10 times/month. Food suitable for lean pork, beef, buffalo, goat… fresh and finely chopped.

How to feed baby pythons: Use a small pin to pin the head of the bait, the left ear holds the python’s head, the right hand holds the stick to put food into the python’s mouth. Do not stick the stick deep into the throat to cause injury. After the bait has been put into the python’s mouth, do not retract the rod, but push the stick horizontally to the edge of the python, leaving the bait. During manipulation, it is necessary to be very gentle to avoid breaking teeth or dropping pythons from above to the ground.

Note when raising pythons

Pythons raised when hungry, molting, incubating eggs … are often very aggressive, they are very sensitive to the odors of tobacco, onions, garlic, lemongrass oil… so these odors should be avoided. But if in case of being bitten by a python, you just need to put a pinch of medicine in your mouth, and the python will immediately spit it out.

Pythons raised when they are full are very gentle, like to be petted and carried, and in the summer they like to soak in water. Therefore, in the barn, the breeding area outside the troughs, drinking pots, it is necessary to have a large pot or build a tank so that when it is hot, the python crawls into the lagoon to bathe …

Pythons molt in the summer, young pythons molt more times than old pythons. When the python is about to molt, the skin color is darker, the eyes become cloudy, stop eating, find places with water, near the water to lie down. The molting period usually lasts from 1-2 weeks.
