For Sale

Each year we will have a variety of different python species for sale depending on the breeding successes each season and the choice of species bred.

We put the health and well being of our animals first, and as a result females will have a rest from breeding every few years. If hatchlings of a particular species are currently unavailable, they will likely be available after the next breeding season.

  • Albino Darwin Carpet Pythons
  • Green Tree Pythons
  • Black-headed Pythons
  • Cape York Coastal Carpet Pythons
  • Children's Pythons

Keeping Reptiles in Australia

It is legal for individuals to keep various native python species in most Australian states and territories provided the correct permits are held. Please note that pythons4sale will not sell any animals to individuals without a valid permit. See below for more information on permits.

It is illegal to take any reptiles from the wild.

It is illegal for us to export animals out of Australia. Unfortunately if you are located overseas we cannot sell you a python.

Caring for your python

GTP enclosure Keepers should refer to and adhere to the Code of practice for the welfare of animals - Private keeping of reptiles provided by the Victorian Department of Primary Industries. ďKeepers must possess a basic knowledge of the biological, nutritional and environmental requirements of reptiles. This is a prerequisite for successful maintenance of captive reptiles because the majority of diseases observed in these animals are precipitated by environmental stress and inadequate husbandry...Ē

To set up your pythonís home and keep it healthy Pythons4Sale recommend the following:
  • An enclosure, usually melamine or PVC, with a glass front. For most species we donít recommend a glass fish tank as it can be difficult to maintain the required heat. The enclosure must be large enough to allow the animal to move around and exercise. For arboreal species ensure that your enclosure is high enough to allow climbing.
  • A heat source such as a heat panel attached to the ceiling of the enclosure. Different species require different temperatures. Please research your animal and where it naturally occurs to determine the optimum temperature for your enclosure. It is important to have a temperature gradient (warmer and cooler ends) in your enclosure so that your animal is able to regulate its body temperature.
  • A thermostat to help maintain the correct temperature within the enclosure. Use your thermostat to measure the hottest part of the enclosure.
  • A water bowl.
  • Branches/perches. Many python species love to climb so please provide them with perches of different thickness at different heights in the enclosure if possible.
  • A hide.
  • Substrate on the bottom of the enclosure. This can include newspaper, sand, bark etc. It may be trial and error to see what works best for you in terms of ease of maintenance, aesthetics and snake health.
  • Food. Most captive pythons will be fine with a diet of thawed frozen rodents. Many pet shops stock these.
Please check your local and state laws regarding the keeping of native species.
