It looks like you might be referring to Python slices; and if so, no that's a different concept.

The closest concept in Python would be a range, which is not a part of a loop but is often used with one. But the design philosophy of Python is unique enough that it's probably not a good idea to try to identify equivalent facilities between it and another language while you are still learning the basics of the other language.
