Two Burmese pythons are getting hitched ahead of Valentine’s Day at the Lafayette Science Museum!

The two pythons, Thor and Jules, are like the modern-day Romeo and Juliet. One came from Zoo-Zoom and the other came from Schoolhouse Reptiles. They fell in love, so naturally the two companies combined to become Schoolhouse Safari.

Hundreds gathered at the Lafayette Science Museum for the ceremony.

Before the two pythons exchanged vows, the museum hosted a day full of activities, including an opportunity to get up close and personal with some reptiles.
