LESSER SUNDA PYTHON (preferred name)

often called a Timor Python

Malayopython timoriensis
or
Broghammerus (was Python) timoriensis


John Fowler & Rachel Barnes


Distribution:- Found on the Lesser Sunda Islands (Flores and Lombien Islands in Indonesia)
(Note - This species does NOT occur on Timor island)
The error about the common name is because Timor is the island where it was first shipped from,
however this species has never been observed on Timor!

Comments:- Grows to over 2 metres (7ft)

Closely related to the Reticulated Python Broghammerus (was Python) reticulatus
