I have only had my RTB for about 6 months. I have owned other snakes in the past and the RTB by far is the best type that I have owned. He is so sweet and docile that he makes it easy to care for him. I also made the switch from live to f/t with no problem at all. I look forward to having more in the future.

I had a gorgeous female ball python name Autumn. She was only 6 months old and died of internal parasites but she was an AMAZING snake... everyone loved her and she was the best pet ive ever had... The signs that i didnt notice before she died were being somewhat limp... and weak seeming, her rectum wouldnt close all the way, and i could feel things moving inside her so i took her to the emergency vet clinic and it was too late... she died that night... but she never stopped feeding, she ate untill the day before she died... she was too weak to strike at it... she just let me drop it into her mouth.. i thought she was just becoming use to eating frozen thawed.... it was sooo sad. If u notice unusual things happening with your snake take it to the doctor right away, thats my advice... even if they arent known symptoms of a illness...

i own a male ball python that is around 12 months old. so far it has proved to be a fantastic pet which is very docile and does not seem to mind being handled. it has however bitten me twice but these were not serious or very painful!

I came upon this site looking for info on snakes. I own a ball python myself. It has yet to strike at me which is a good thing, and its very gentle. I got it to help me with my uneasiness with snakes and so far so good. Its a great pet to own, and a great friend!

I am the owner of two ball pythons. they are about 3 years old, one is 5ft. and the other is only around 4. its not the easiest thing to measure ive noticed. They are the best friends i have ever had, and more so, part of the family. they have never tried to bite me or my children at any time. and occasionally i will hold the live rat as they take it from my hand,, scarry at first, but, very exciting.

The only case I've heard of the snakes eating other snakes came from a book by Bill Love, a leading herptologist. If you feed your multiple snakes at the same time, there is a large chance that they will both/all go for the same food item. Generally, while eating the mouse, one snake can begin to eat the other, simply because they are consuming the mouse, which the other snake is also attached to. I feed my snakes in separate Rubbermaid containers anyway, so that they don't associate the opening of their cage with food, to prevent them from striking. I haven't heard too much on cannibalism in the cases of breeding, though that would be possible as well.

yeah in rare cases corn snakes will eat each other. There is a bigger chance if you are breeding them that this will happen. other than that good care sheet.
