Ball pythons, also known as the “royal python”, are found in sub-Saharan Africa. They are a non-venomous constrictor and can grow up to 6 feet long. A lot of people ask, “Why does it have ball in its name?” Well, the answer is because when it’s very, very scared, it curls into a ball. Males can get up to 5.5 feet while females can get up to 6 feet.

  • Diet

In the wild, they eat shrews, mice, and rats. Also, some younger pythons may eat birds.

  • Reproduction

The female lays three to eleven rather large leathery eggs. The eggs hatch after fifty-five to sixty days. Python eggs are incubated by the female under the ground.
