Such a great picture...
 Do you know what kind of python this is? I looked up some kinds of pythons.. it sorta looks like a "short- tailed python" is you look on Google Images.

Thank you ;)  The label on the tank said "Reticulated Python", but I've received quite a few comments here on DevArt from other users saying it is a short-tailed python.  I looked up the snake's facial features and it does appear to be a short-tailed python (so the zoo had the tank mislabeled unfortunately it appears).

That's not a retic, but Python curtus.

Really? I'm beginning to think that this snake is a weird subspecies, or his tank was mislabeled at the zoo.  I have had quite a few people tell me that he is something else.  But the label on his exhibit said he was a Reticulated Pyton.

I'm not as well-rounded on reptiles as I am on avians and mammals, so I'll have to ask a few of the keepers next time I visit that zoo.

Thanks for the info ;)

Yup, that's short tailed python, precisely Python curtus brongersmai "black form".
Maybe early in its cage was retic and then it was replaced by P. curtus and they forgot to change label or they thought that people don't mind :P
Cheers : )
