Abstract
Pythons are large vertebrate mega-fauna that often carry ‘flagship’ status in its range countries. This paper explores the python’s systematic classification and taxonomy, its biogeographical distribution from an evolutionary perspective, its current ecological speciation (sympatric and allopatric), and provides a brief biogeographical diagnosis of the green python (Chondropython viridis).
