About the Water Python

Can be bad-tempered if not treated right. From Wikipedia, "Liasis mackloti is a snake that is known and sold in the live exotic animal trade, or exotic pet trade, bringing it far beyond its native range, to as far as the United Kingdom, and North America, where it is sold and kept in captivity from pet stores, speciality shops, and conventions."

Breeding: The Water Python breeds easily in captivity. They lay eggs.
