Burmese Python — Kaa


Perhaps predictably, the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo’s other Burmese Python is named Kaa. I admit, the photos I got of Kaa are not nearly as good as those I got of Shiva. Kaa was under the heat lamp and looked as if he was getting ready to moult, and the glass in front of him was a bit dirty and smudged.

Kaa is also over 13 feet long and weighs in the neighborhood of 75 pounds (~4.05m, ~34.02kg). He apparently likes chicken, according to the zookeeper.

He opened his mouth a couple of times (which seems to be confirm he was close to moulting). I couldn’t resist getting pics of that, and sorry they’re a little blurry.
