Python regius

Ball pythons (Python regius)

Ball pythons (Python regius) are found at the edges of the forest lands of Central and Western Africa This is the smallest of the African pythons in the pet trade. They are equally comfortable on the ground and in trees and are particularly active around dawn and dusk. Also called royal pythons in other areas of the world, here in the United States we call them "balls" due to their habit of curling themselves up into a tight ball when they are nervous with their heads pulled firmly into the center. Like most pythons, ball pythons are curious and gentle snakes.

Ball pythons typically reach 4 feet (1.2 m) in length and occasionally, there are specimens that reach 5 feet (1.5 m). When properly fed, their bodies are round and muscular. Like all pythons and boas, ball pythons have anal spurs. These single claws, appearing on either side of the vent, are the vestigial remains of the hind legs snakes lost during their evolution from lizard to snake millions of years ago. Males have longer spurs than do the females; males also have smaller heads than the females.

Ball pythons, like all pythons and boas, devour a variety of prey in the wild - amphibians, lizards, other snakes, birds and small mammals. They do not eat mice in the wild, however, and do not recognize the mice we offer them as being something edible. Thus, imported wild-caught ball pythons tend to be very picky eaters, at least initially, and drive their owners to distraction in their attempts to get them to eat something. For this and many other reasons, we highly recommend captive bred animals over wild caught  of captive hatched (ch) ones.
