    Is there much difference between the 2? Any reason to favour one sex over the other? (Like how male birds tend to look better). Any size differences? I realise I’m being veeerrry broad here and not specifying any particular species, because I’m more just interested in a general overview.

    Though I’ll specify if anyone has any of the above about olives and scrubs in particular. But curious about all pythons. Oh and I realise some species the males have spurs.

    Cheers,
    Troy.

    Females generally grow bigger.
    I find that many buyers/keepers want a female with the thoughts of breeding down the track.
