I have had my Ball Python for about 4 months. He is a great pet. I have had no trouble getting him to eat. He loves to be held. He is my first snake. Ball Pythons are great beginner pets.

I have had my Ball Python for 2 or 3 months now. His name is Jazz. I have never had a pet snake until this one came along. He is a great pet. We feed him 2 mice a week. He loves to be held. He has not even acted like he was going to bite me. Ball Pythons are great pets for the begginer.

My Teacher has a ball python. i think it's one of the tightest snakes out there. Her python is about three feet already and eats a lot. It loves kids. Steven Cox Dec.7, 2007

I have a male Granite Ball/Royal python. I've owned many reptiles before but I think ball Pythons have to be the best. They are easy to care for as long as you have time to regularly handle them. TIPS: NO HEAT ROCKS NO NEWSPAPER

We have a beautiful young royal python named Cleopatra. She didn't eat for the first couple weeks, but she loves to eat for us now. We wash our hands and take her out and play with her every day for about an hour. Every three days or so, we thaw a frozen "fuzzy" mouse for her. We put her back in her container and dangle it in front of her by the tail. We love to watch her gobble mice up.

One of the theories for the name "royal" python is that Cleopatra used to wear ball pythons around her wrist as a bracelet. Of course, we love to do the same thing!

we have a royal pythoon called freddie, he's about 8 months old and has a lovely temperament. he just did his first complete shed and we're like proud parents. his tail seems to be going hard and dark but the shed was complete from the tip of the tail to the eye caps.

I have had a ball python now for about two and a half years. Her name is Chocolate. I am 13 years old, and they are amazing pets. (especially for beginners!!) Very easy to care for, dont require much. Mine once went for 3 months without eating simply because I re-did her cage. Very picky eaters, but are excellent pets. Gets along great with everyone. Never attempted to bite. Love reptiles and am thinking about getting a Bearded Dragon.

ball pythons are exceptional easy to care for. they make great pets because of their docility. if you are a novice when it comes to caring for reptiles, i recommend you begin with a ball python.
