Some pythons, particularly gravid females sometimes lay on their back, especially when gravid


Woma Python Aspidites ramsayi
The Woma Python (Aspidites ramsayi) above laid 8 normal sized eggs about the size of chicken eggs, and also an additional 2 half sized eggs which were infertile. This snake is a Tanami Woma, which are readily available in Australia.
Tanami Womas originally came from the Tanami Desert in the Northern Territory average adult size is about 4-5 ft. (1.2 -1.5 metres) However Womas from South Australia grow much larger to about 2.7 metres (9ft).

In the wild this species feeds mainly on reptiles, and wild caught captive Womas (Aspidites ramsayi) can be problematic feeders initially. However in captivity this species has a reputation for being docile with an aggressive appetite so it is easy to get bitten if the snake is hungry!
