Calabaria reinhardtii

Female African burrowing pythons (Calabaria reinhardtii) typically lay between one and five large, unusually elongated eggs at the end of the dry season. Unusually for a python, the mother does not appear to coil herself around the eggs during incubation. The hatchlings grow relatively fast, and in captivity can reach breeding age at around three years old, possibly living for over 20 years.
