Description


The Ball Python (scientifically named Python Regius) is a species that originates from sub-Saharan Africa. The name is based upon the fact that the animal has a tendency to curl itself into a ball when under attack, stressed or frightened. The species is also commonly known as the Royal Python. The name Royal Python anecdotally comes from the fact that African royalty would wear Ball Pythons around their necks as a form of living jewelry. Like other pythons, the Ball Python is a non-venomous constrictor. Ball Pythons are common house hold pets due to their relatively small size, docile temperament and the fact that they are non-venomous.

Ball Pythons are large bodied snakes. They come in a wide variety of colours and morphs (genetic mutations). However, the snakes colorings tend to be more earthy: browns, beiges, or black with gold and white markings. The snakes bellies are usually white or cream and may contain black markings. The snakes body is normally stocky with the head being relatively small in comparison. The scales of the Ball Python are smooth.
