    There's 4 species in the "children's python" category... spotted pythons are one of the 4.

    Yes I understand that. I was also leaning towards spotted

    ok definitely a lot bigger than it looked in first picture -- def not a pygmy ( i thought the first pic was majority of the snakes body length)

    It looks like a hybrid, possibly a Spotted. It's certainly at least part Spotted.

    I have asked the person I purchased it off and the scientific naming is childreni but yes could be a bit of a mix

    It's definitely not a Children's Python. It may be a Children's x Spotted hybrid.

    It'll still make a fine pet. These days there's not much point breeding Antaresia of unknown origin unless they look particularly fancy in some way. That's an okay enough looking animal but babies from it would be difficult to sell because it's just a generic looking Ant. A small number of people are into llocalities most people want morphs, some want particularly nice looking high contrast animals etc. If you don't want it you should be able to find a decent pet home for it.
