Solar: Our beautiful black headed python is a very unique animal with a very simplified (and typically Australian) name. As the name suggests, she has a beautiful black head that is used for a very important purpose. Black headed pythons live in arid/open plains, sometimes with little to no areas for hiding. They use cracks in the ground, burrows, outcrops, tussocks and other debris to call home. To enable them to warm up in the mornings, rather than expose their whole body to the elements and the predators, they simply expose their beautiful shiny head. This operates as a very effective solar panel warming the body of this amazing ectothermic critter! Although snakes are one of the most feared critters, they are one that deserve respect, understanding and tolerance. If given the time, Solar is sure to intrigue!
