How To Properly Handle Ball Pythons For Sale

If you’re considering purchasing ball pythons for sale, you’ll need to know how to properly handle and care for them. This is especially true if you’re a first-time snake owner. After unboxing your new pet snake, you won’t want to handle it for the first twenty four hours (or until you see that it’s moving about and acting normally). After that initial period, you should aim to handle the snake at least once or twice a week. Ball pythons don’t need too much social interaction for their mental health, so there is no need to hold them more than once a day. However, it’s just as important to handle your ball python regularly so that it stays tame. Handling your python is a great way for it to get in some routine exercise!

Tips For Handling A Ball Python

Always wash your hands first before you begin handling your ball python. Scent them with hand sanitizer to remove any viruses, bacteria or potential parasites from your hands. This also helps make your hands smell inedible to your ball python since it finds its prey with smell and heat sensing. Once the snake is calm, it’s safe to pick it up with two hands. Have one hand behind the head of the ball python and the other supporting the rest of its body.

You never want to pick up the ball python by its tail or else you risk damaging its spine. There is no such thing as an aggressive ball python for sale as a pet. However, they do act on instinct and don’t know a prey heat signature from a human hand sometimes. If you’re confident that you’ll be able to handle snakes, it’s time to start searching for ball pythons for sale online!
