While the king cobra attacks at lighting speed, the reticulated python ambush its prey by grabbing them and immediately coiling its body around the prey and squeezing it will it suffocates. It will then swallow its meal whole head first. Because they are so bulky the reticulated python often hunts on the ground and not by leaping onto their prey from tree branches.
Blood pythons get their name from their body colouration which ranges from washed out to blood red over a tan body. Although shorter than most python species, it tends to weigh more because of its thick body.
