Pythons are considered invasive because they prey on native birds, mammals and even alligators.

Pythons are also called Indian python, black-tailed python, Indian rock python, and Asian rock python. It is generally lighter colored than the Burmese python and reaches usually 3 m (9.8 ft).

Pythons, like any other snake are lethargic and slow moving even in their native habitat. They exhibit timidity and rarely try to attack even when attacked. Locomotion is usually with the body moving in a straight line, by "walking on its ribs".

The black tailed pythons are excellent swimmers and are quite at home in water. They can be wholly submerged in water for many minutes, if necessary, but usually prefer to remain near the bank.
