Ball pythons (Python regius) are one of the most popular pet snakes in the world. They are relatively small, docile, and easy to care for. Ball pythons are native to West and Central Africa, where they live in tropical forests and savannas.

Ball pythons are constrictors, which means they kill their prey by wrapping their bodies around it and squeezing. They eat rodents, such as mice and rats. In captivity, ball pythons are typically fed frozen thawed rodents that are the same size as the snake’s widest part.

Ball pythons need a warm, humid environment. Their enclosure should have a basking spot that is about 90 degrees Fahrenheit and a cool side that is about 75 degrees Fahrenheit. The humidity should be kept between 50 and 70%.

Ball pythons are nocturnal, which means they are most active at night. They are also solitary animals and do not need to be housed with other snakes.

Ball pythons are generally healthy snakes, but they can be susceptible to respiratory infections. It is important to take your ball python to the vet for regular checkups.

If you are considering getting a ball python, be sure to do your research and find a reputable breeder. Ball pythons can make great pets for people of all ages.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind when caring for a ball python:

  • Provide a secure enclosure that is at least 4 feet long and 2 feet wide.
  • Use a substrate such as aspen shavings or cypress mulch to help maintain humidity.
  • Place a heat lamp on one end of the enclosure to create a basking spot.
  • Provide a water bowl that is large enough for the snake to soak in.
  • Hide boxes for the snake to feel secure in.
  • Be patient and gentle when handling your ball python.

With proper care, your ball python can live for 20 years or more.
