The zoo's small group of Macklot's python was acquired in an exchange in 1996 and they are captive bred in the USA. Another python of the Liasis group, in colour it is an olive brown, patterned with small yellowish spots. This snake is sometimes called the White-lipped python.

We have found the Macklot's grow quite slowly, and take their time to mature, consequntly breeding here has not taken place yet.
