A zoo in Thailand has become the world's first to succeed in breeding the very rare "Gold Thai python" (Molur Bivittatus) with 30 healthy baby pythons.
The Nakhon Ratchasima Zoo would distribute the baby pythons to zoos nationwide after one year so the public could learn about this species which is unique to Thailand.
The "gold Thai python" once lived in dry evergreen forests in Nakhon Ratchasima, Buri Ram, Chaiyaphum, Khon Kaen, Maha Sarakham, Prachin Buri and Sa Kaew. But as its habitat was encroached by humans, the python, now protected by Thai law, was said to have dropped to less than 100 in number. This type of python grows to six metres in length by the age of 5. It reproduces in December to February, its pregnancy lasts two months.
