Irian Jaya or Jungle?

    Hey guys!

    I had planned on getting a jungle carpet python in a few months, but something came up and a local specialty shop has an Irian Jaya for sale. I've held it and it's super sweet. I'm considering buying it. So my question is this... What's the difference between IRs and Jungles, besides color? Which is better? Any and all information is helpful.

    Thanks guys!

    I think all carpet pythons are great. ;)
    Irian jayas are the smallest subspecies. Jungles can grow a little bit longer, but are still typically smaller than a coastal. The colors and patterns are the biggest difference between them. And although they look different they are both equally beautiful. It's really just about your preference.

    Ah, okay. I wanted a jungle partly for their color and partly for their size. I have two bp's and was looking for a bigger snake, but this Jaya...

    Thanks for the info :)
