The thermal preference, voluntary maxima and thermal control were studied in the Papuan-New Guinean pythons Python spilotus, P. boeleni, Liasis albertisii, L. papuanus, L. boa and Chondropython viridis. Preferred temperature data were similar for all species and mean preferred head temperatures were lower than those for the body. Preferred and voluntary means generally were higher for the Papuan-New Guinean pythons than those found for Australian species and probably reflect adaptation to hotter tropical environments.
