Woma pythons, sometimes referred to as Ramsay's or sand pythons, are a species of nonvenomous snake native to the arid regions of Australia. Due to habitat loss, these snakes are classified as endangered under the IUCN's Red List of Threatened Species.

The Aquarium's woma python, named Wallace, came from the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo and is currently undergoing handling training with our staff to prepare for his first Animal Encounter. 

In the meantime, the Aquarium's milk snake, Grommet, is program-ready. Keep an eye out for him during your next visit to the Aquarium!

Stay tuned for more behind-the-scenes updates.
