This week’s patients are very special; these 15 young Carpet Pythons have recently hatched at Currumbin Wildlife Hospital.
A member of the public brought the snake eggs to the wildlife hospital when he found them abandoned under his home. The mother snake usually coils her body around the eggs until they hatch but mother snake was nowhere to be found. The eggs were cared for at the perfect temperature and humidity at Currumbin Wildlife Hospital until they hatched into a group of inquisitive and beautiful Carpet Pythons.
These young pythons are completely independent and do not need their mother for survival, so they are ready for an adventure in the wild. Pythons are non-venomous and do a great job of keeping rodents under control.
Check out the footage of these beautiful creatures in action.
