What makes a blood python a blood python? How can you tell a Borneo STP from a Sumatran STP? And wait, aren't there blood pythons in Sumatra, too? Here we'll help you get to know "the short-tailed trifecta" on a deeper level, with information on each species, their distribution & natural history, variations in appearance, and more.
Along with their stunning natural beauty, blood & short-tailed pythons also possess a dazzling array of color and pattern mutations. We'd like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the fellow breeders and hobbyists who have assisted us in assembling these photo galleries. Please take a moment to visit their websites and/or FB pages, as noted in the photo comments.
