    Hi Dexter,

    Buy yourself a copy of The Complete Children's Python book, the differences between the species are well explained within. Lots of photos highlighting the differences and all the information you will need to keep this diminutive yet amazing python genus in captivity.

    Different species can be identified by the following:
    • belly scale count
    • head shape and head scale patterning
    • body blotch sizes/patterns
    Regards,
    Nick
