Why Ball Pythons Make Great Pets

ball pythons

Who’s a good boy? It’s your ball python! Seriously, ball pythons are among the most popular reptiles for sale. With so much to love, there’s no reason not to experience one for yourself. If you’re thinking you don’t want to die at the wrath of a snake, no worries. A ball python is docile, slow, and definitely too small to harm any human adult. They can be a little mischievous and escape the enclosure but that can be bypassed with an enclosure made just for ball pythons. If being docile and harmless aren’t enough to make the case for these fascinating snakes, let’s look at some more reasons why ball pythons make great pets.

Low maintenance. As you’ll find, once you purchase a ball python for sale and get it settled in it’s new home, there isn’t going to be a lot of upkeep. Of course, you want to make sure that the temperature and humidity stays regulated but as far as feeding and handling, they don’t need much. Since they only need one weekly feeding, you can set timers for the heating and lighting, and confidently go on trips without having to worry about making sure it’s fed or looked after.

More calm. Snakes are known to be unpredictable, able to strike at any moment. With ball pythons, however, you won’t have to worry about this. They’re extremely slow and tend to be calm by default. Even as you handle them, they’ll slither across your neck and arms at their own pace. They’re extremely laid-back and usually up for a handling.

Easy to handle. Since they’re calm by nature, you may have assumed that they’re also great to handle. At first, it’s best to let the ball python get comfortable with you. You may notice in the beginning that it might take a while for it to come out of it’s figurative shell, but once it does, it’ll have no problem moving around you.

Quick, easy clean up. With once-weekly feedings, you can imagine that cleaning up after a ball python is relatively easy. As long as you maintain the enclosure keeping it clean, there won’t be any noticeable smell coming from it.
