Pythons Exhibifed at
Amer. Museum of Natural History
. Two live pythons, captured in
New Guinea this summer during
a biological expedition, went on
display in November as the " Exhibit
of the Month" in the 77th
Street Foyer of The American
Museum of Natural History.
The pythons — one a Green
Python and the other a D'Albertis
Pydion — will be displayed in
a special glass - enclosed case
simulating their natural surroundings.
Both snakes — well
over four feet long — are considered
small when compared
with some of their close phython
relatives known to reach 20 to
30 feet in length.
The tree- dwelling Green Python
— almost entirely green
as an adult — is well concealed
in its leafy surroundings. The
young, however, are a bright
orange when hatched and turn
yellow before they assume the
green of their habitat. Greatly
enlarged front teeth and a tail
which is well adapted for holding
on to tree branches enable this
small non- venomous python to
catch food — mostly birds —
The Green Python has a set
of deep pits along its jaw that
contain organs very sensitive
to differences in temperature.
These enable this nocturnal snake
to determine the presence of a
warm- bodied creature in die
The D'Albertis Python, unlike
its arboreal neighbor the Green
Python, is primarily a terrestrial
inhabitant of the New Guinea rain
forest. The brown- gold of its
scales helps die nocturnal D'Albertis
Python blend with me dead
leaves which cover much of die
Floor of die rain forest. This
non- venomous snake, named after
its discoverer, die l9di Century
biological explorer Luigi
D'Albertis, is nearly six feet
long and has a black head widi
white spots along its lip.
Bodi pydions, part of die

collection of New
