The “Rainbow Python’s” enchanting beauty is said to be the longest and heaviest python in the world!

Recently, a video was shared “chirping” online after filming an image of a python with mesmerizing rainbow colors.

The video was posted on Instagram by a zookeeper named Jay Brewer. Jay is also a founder of the Reptile Zoo in California, USA.

Jay Brewer is the person who posted the famous video on the social network Instagram.

In the clip, Jay can be seen carrying a rare python in a box. Due to sunlight, the reflections on the python skin create a variety of colors that make it look like a sparkling rainbow. According to Jay, it was a python of the brocade python family.


This is not the first time the zoo owner has posted pictures of animals on social networks. Jay regularly posts pictures of various reptiles on his Instagram page “jayprehistoricpets”.

“It is a super cute python. Its gentleness is one of the best I’ve ever seen,” added Brewer.

After being posted online, the video of the brocade python emitting a magical rainbow light has attracted the attention of netizens. To date, the video has more than 7 million views and continues to grow.


Most netizens were mesmerized by the color of the python and couldn’t stop praising. “Beautiful creature,” said one netizen. Another commented: “Seven colors of the rainbow”.


The spotted python is said to be the longest and heaviest python in the world. Although not poisonous, they can still easily kill a person just by coiling around and squeezing around the person’s body.

It is known that the python has a genetic combination between the Southeast Asian reticulated python and the Burmese golden python, which is the factor that helps its skin become rainbow-colored in the light. 

Ironically, there are many people in the world who like pythons. So much so that they even kept it as a pet. However, to do so, you must be an expert, especially when it is a dangerous animal like python.
