It’s the time of year when the question on everyones mind is when will 2020 baby ball pythons arrive? The answer is that there are eggs on the ground and some lucky breeders have started hatching baby snakes already. So it is safe to say that the 2020 ball python hatching season has officially begun.
Setting Up Baby Ball Pythons
Since baby snakes are here and ready to ship it would be wise to go over setting up baby ball pythons. There are many different opinions on how to set up these baby snakes. We base our advise on years of experience in handling and raising these beautiful companion animals. In our opinion smaller is always better when setting up baby ball pythons. They are accustomed to tight confined spaces in the wild and are much happier when they have a small hide spot. When they can touch all sides of the hide with their body they begin to feel safe. When they feel safe they will feed properly and flourish.
Feeding These Baby Snakes
Feeding these baby snakes is as simple as a three step process. Step one is to use a heating pad and not a heating lamp. Heating lamps dry out the terrarium and confuse the hatchling snakes ability to detect prey items. Step two is to use a medium sized prey item to start with. Most reptile owners feel that a pinky or fuzzy mouse is the way to go but a baby python is able to consume a medium mouse with no problems. The final step is to have a heat signature on the food item. A wet thawed mouse is not very appetizing even to a snake. The best plan is to dry off the mouse after thawing it and then use a heat lamp, the sun or a hair dryer to add body heat to the food.
