The largest of the African snakes, Python sebae can reach over twenty feet in length and over 200 pounds in weight. It stays mostly near water and has a range from the Sahara desert to South Africa. Rock pythons can live over 25 years in captivity. They kill by constriction and their adult diet includes rodents, small antelopes, warthogs, dogs, monkeys, water birds, goats and small crocodiles. Zoos usually feed them rabbits.
