Forgotten Friend Reptile Sanctuary brought pythons to Good Day PA for Creature Feature Friday. Jesse Rothacker explained that Burmese Pythons are native to the country of Burma. They are such a gentile-natured snake that they became popular pets a few decades ago but unfortunately when the pet python grows extremely large, some owners make a bad decision to release them. Rothacker noted that Burmese Pythons can grow 15-20 feet long.
