Ball Python Tips From Zen Animal Care Manager

Ball Python Care

Kasey, Zen's own Animal Care Manager, discusses why Ball Pythons are among her top five easiest reptiles! "Ball Pythons are one of my favorite snake species for their ‘cuddliness’. They get their name from the defensive posture they display when they coil themselves into a ball with their head tucked into the center of the coil. Ball Pythons are sometimes called Royal Pythons. It is believed that name stemmed from the thought that Queen Cleopatra wore a ball python around her wrist as a bracelet,” she explained.

 

 

Getting a Ball Python

Ball Python BeginnerAre you getting a new Ball Python? Our Animal Care Manager Kasey shares tips she's learned along the way when bringing a new reptile friend into her family! “Ball Pythons can make a great addition to families with responsible children, as they are docile and rarely bite. Being in the constrictor family some parents may be hesitant to let their children handle them, but Ball Pythons are too small to constrict humans, even children,” she explained.

And these are only a few of the fun facts you'll learn!

Your Healthy Snake 

The first step toward keeping your snake healthy, according to Kasey, is to schedule a visit with a  veterinarian specializing in exotics within the first couple weeks of them coming home. This will help establish a baseline for your pet and create a relationship  with the veterinarian in the event your animal is to ever fall ill. Observing your snake’s behavior, body condition, activity level, skin, shedding, bowel movements, and urination is important to monitor overall health. 

Ball Python Enclosures  

Our Ball Python Enclosures are not only functional but beautiful, easy to assemble, and affordable.  Zen Habitats enclosures provide a healthy environment for your python to thrive, including large enclosures, front-opening doors, bamboo-finished panels, and non-reflective surfaces.
