DIET: Babies will eat fuzzie mice. Juveniles can eat fully weaned mice or baby rats. Adults prefer rats. We have all sizes of frozen rodents in our Food and Feeders Section.
HABITAT: Ball Pythons are not very active snakes, so a small enclosure is fine for babies and juvenile snakes. (10 to 20 gallon long glass tank). For an adult we recommend a 30 gallon tank with a secured screen top. Ball Pythons like to burrow and hide so a Cave or hide box is highly recommended. Recommmended Temperatures for Ball Pythons are between 80 to 85F. For water provide a water dish large enough for a snake to soak themselves in for drinking and shedding purposes. For a hot spot we highly recommend a heat pad to reach a temperature of 90F for that specific spot in the tank. For a Substrate we recommend a Reptile Approved Substrate such as Aspen, Reptibark, or Cypress Mulch. Recommended supplies are available in our Reptile Supplies Section.
