An adult rock python will grow to be 14-16 feet (4-5 metres) in length, with females being bigger than males and has an average life span of 20 years. African rock python’s diet consists of defrosted rats, mice and eventually rabbits. They will require a water bowl, not only to drink from to ensure hydration but they may bathe in it to cool down or to help shedding skin, therefore it will need to be big enough to fit themselves in. Adult rock pythons may require regular soaks as finding a water bowl big enough could be tricky. Because of their exceptional size and bad attitude, the African rock python is not a species for beginners.
