Hey guys I have a zebra jungle python (male as stated from previous owner) I bought him not too long ago and he was advertised as 10 months old, around 11-12 now. Have had a few problems with him regarding his biting and am currently sitting in hospital thanks to him, have nothing against him and know it was my fault I got bit but if anyone has more experience with aggressive snakes and would like this fella for a cheap price message me and we can sort specifics. Would rather he goes to someone who knows more about pythons/aggressive pythons for his sake and mine, cheers

EDIT: if I’m sure he’ll go to a good home i am willing to give him away for free

How’d you end up in hospital from a yearling :O
No good home will take him for free, only inexperienced keepers looking for free snake, cheap skates, flippers, etc
look what happens to "free to good home" cats and dogs, - free shark food

Yeah it’s a shame in my opinion I think he’s one of the coolest I’ve owned but he’s decided I am his enemy lol
I've reconsidered mate and reckon i can give him loving home.

I''ll pm you and figure out how to get him from me to you.

how is it awful? do you live under a rock?
not saying everyones going to use free animals as shark bait, but it happens ALOT - a simple deterrant is adding a cheap price tag... $100 suddenly 99% of the interested people dont want anything to do with the "cheap/free to a good home"

Shark bait?
It's a reference to people taking "kittens free to good home" to use as bait to go shark fishing - it does happen, People look for "free" ads to use animals thought to become pets as food for their pets instead too.
Attaching a pricetag also probably cuts down on people wanting to take the animal on impulse who cannot supply the right enclosure or husbandry.

Has anyone else noticed in the first and third pictures it looks like the last shed has not come off completely. Could that be why it is a bit aggressive.

Yes i did notice this, he had a small piece that seemed to be stuck to his neck for a little bit, i gave his tank a light mist here and there and helped when i could but left him alone and he has just started a new shed today which hopefully resolves all that

He bit me on the joint of my finger and it took me quite a while to dislodge him (gently), put some alcohol on it went to bed woke up and couldn’t move it haha, all resolved now. I wouldn’t sell him to anyone who can’t prove they have experience in keeping pythons otherwise I will just keep him and hopefully he chills

being a jungle, he probably wont calm down... but that can just mean you dont have to handle him :) and he can be a display snake
