Reticulated python born in The Netherlands

This video is called Reticulated Python/Anaconda Comparison.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV:

In the zoo for reptiles in Vissingen, a reticulated python was born.

Probably it is for the first time ever in Europe that such a snake came out of an egg.

It is the longest snake in the world; females in nature may grow to over 9 meter.

Only a few zoos keep them, as reticulated pythons bite quickly and can strangle a human within a few seconds.

The baby in Vlissingen is 80 centimeter.

In January, the mother laid 60 eggs.

Two of those were put into an incubator; one of those was successful.
