After losing my first python, a little male Stimson’s, I realised that my snakes were all getting older. When I checked on my oldest girl, I found that she was at least 20 years old, so is a pretty old python.
Although she is pretty healthy, she doesn’t eat as often as she used to, and is content to just lie around doing nothing. The other younger female Stimson’s python is very active and eats everything offered.
It seems as though I will very soon have to accept that another of my snakes will cross the rainbow bridge. At least she’s had a long and healthy life.
Even my Centralian python is at least fifteen years old, but he seems to be fine at present. I’m not sure how long they live in captivity, but hopefully, at least to 20 years.
