About This Quiz
Did you know there are about 41 species and subspecies of pythons out in the world right now? Many of the largest snakes you'll find anywhere are pythons, and even the smallest among them are pretty impressive beasts. As you watch them constricting and doing their thing, it's hard not to be impressed by how these simple creatures can be so powerful, yet somehow so graceful at the same time. Some are known for being pretty feisty, but a number of pythons are actually extremely calm and docile — they seem to just want to mind their own business. As a result, pythons can sometimes make excellent pets, if you're the sort of person who's comfortable with these animals. And why shouldn't you be? Pythons are incredible creatures that so many people don't take the time to understand. But we hope you're not like that!
Knowing pythons as you surely do, there's no doubt in our minds that you've learned a lot about the family, and you've come to appreciate and respect at least one species more than the others. Maybe that's the powerful and awe-inspiring python that's meant to be guarding your soul. There's only one way to know! Dig into the quiz and find out!
