Pythons are a group of nonvenomous snakes found in Africa, Asia and Australia.[1]

It is one possible corporeal form of the Patronus Charm.[2]


In 1991 Dudley Dursley with his friend Piers Polkiss wanted to see big, man-crushing pythons in the Zoo, while Harry Potter walked up to boa constrictor's tank, and unknowingly using Parselmouth, communicated with it.[3]
