New Guinea Snake Charmer 2

Boelen's python is one of the most rare and beautiful snakes in the world. At first glance, it is black with a velvet texture, but when it bends and light strikes its body from the side it turns into a rainbow. It is endemic to New Guinea were is protected and respected. Very few are allowed to be exported and it is extremely difficult to breed in captivity.
