The Complete Carpet Python

Carpet pythons are among the most diverse, vivid and fascinating of all the snakes. The Complete Carpet Python is a long-overdue work by Dr Justin Julander and Nick Mutton. It details the natural history, captive care and breeding of this amazing group and their relatives, covering Morelia spilota, M. imbricta, M. bredli, and M. carinata, and providing many intimate details of the lives of these enigmatic creatures in the wild.


This book represents the culmination of the latest scientific research and also draws from the authors’ nearly four decades of combined experience working with carpet pythons, and the contributions of other notable herpetologists and herpetoculturalists.


The text is supported by extensive high-quality colour photographic records of the carpet python complex. Providing an understanding of the wild behaviour of these species, this book gives an important insight into their needs in captivity and provides a window into the amazing adaptations which have allowed them to flourish throughout their 25 million-year history.


The expansive coverage of captive breeding includes new, original research as well as a special chapter on Reproductive Physiology and Advanced Management, written by Dr Benson Morrill.


Selective breeding and the development of designer variants have become a driving force in the herpetoculture and The Complete Carpet Python concludes with an expansive gallery of genetic mutations and selectively bred traits, many of which are pictured in this book for the first time.


The species accounts, covering 139 pages, feature great photography illustrating wild specimens in typical habitat. Each species account details distribution, size, colouration, morphology, natural history and reproduction.
