The Ball Python (python regius),
also known as the Royal Python, is one of the most beautiful snakes in the
world, displaying remarkable patterns of gold, ebony, and bronze. It is an
extremely docile snake which is one of the reasons why they make great
Ball Pythons are nocturnal so during the day they will generally sleep in
their hide boxes, but at night you can watch them take baths.
These snakes are imported into the United States by the thousands. Most will not eat due to stress and internal parasites. They also are covered in
huge ticks which, must be removed.
Reptile City treats each wild caught Ball Python for worms and inspect each snake for ticks before shipping. After treatment and placed in natural enclosures, our Ball Pythons will eat and thrive in captivity.
