More Info.
Henry Piorun Reptiles - Savu Python Page

Savu Python was first discovered a few years ago in 1993. Also known as the Sawu Python, it originates from the island of Sawu which lies off the southwest coast of New Guinea, a tiny island of just a 160 square miles. The Savu Python is found no where else, therefore it has the smallest geographical distribution of any python species.

Savu Pythons are sometimes very hard to find in the wild because they like to hide beneath rocks and shrubs. They need some type of bedding to lie on, something they are able to "hide" themselves in or under, but they need easy access to water. As hatchlings and juveniles, the pythons will eat small fuzzy mice and as they get older the food will progress to small rats and sometimes medium size rats.


We have many other species documented in similar fashion which are listed on our home page, in the 8. Links - Species Specific section.

 All our links are carefully checked and quality vetted, to improve your browsing experience.
