How often should I feed my Ball Python?
-We suggest offering food once a week for proper growth and health.

Will my Ball Python act more aggressively if I offer live prey compared to frozen thawed?
-In our experience there is no difference. Ball Pythons are naturally a docile snake. Most people prefer frozen thawed due to the convenience or lack of access to live prey.

Should I feed my Ball Python in a different cage than the one it currently lives in?
-That is up to you. We’ve heard before that feeding in a separate cage would have the snake differentiate your hand to prey in order to reduce the chances of getting bit when reaching into a cage, but we don’t agree with that. The best sense a snake has is its smell. If it doesn’t smell any food around, it will not mistakenly think you hand is food. The pro in feeding in a separate cage is that if the snake doesn’t feed, the rodent wouldn’t make a mess in the actual cage but the con is sometimes a snake would refuse to feed since it was moved.

How long should I wait before handling my snake after I feed it?
-You should wait about 2-3 days to let the snake properly digest its food before handling.

What is the difference between a Co-dominant and dominant trait?
-Simplest way we can explain this is that a co-dominant trait can be passed down to 50% of its offsprings and has super form (100% of offsprings from super shows the co-dominant trait) while a dominant trait is a genetic trait that can be only passed down to 50% of its offsprings with no super form.

Can I make an albino by breeding that to a non- albino Ball Python?
-No. Albino is a simple recessive trait. To produce a visual simple recessive morph both parents need to carry the trait. Either parents must be a visual albino or both must carry the albino gene (Het albino). Other morphs that are simple recessive are pied, genetic stripe, axanthic, clown….

If I want to breed my Ball Pythons when should I introduce them together?
-We start pairing our Ball Pythons in December until May.

What temperature should I incubate my eggs and what incubation medium do you use?
-We incubate our Ball Python eggs at 87-89f. Perlite is the incubation medium that we use.
