Burmese Python

Python molurus
A female Burmese python can lay more than 50 eggs at a time, often in a tree hollow. She wraps her body around the eggs and, by shivering, or trembling her muscles, creates enough heat to raise its body temperature and incubate the eggs.

Habitat destruction and poaching for its skin pose threats to the Burmese python in the wild.
