I've had my ball for about 2 months. I named him Iggy, from the Maximum Ride series. He is quite loving. He only gives me little kisses and used to love to curl up in my hair, until I cut it. I wouldn't trade him back for anything in the world. My best friend, who used to be/still is deathly afraid of snakes, loves him too. I love my ball python!

I have had my python for about 3 weeks now and he is so cool, he eats great and he completely loves being handled. He can eat large mice with eaze and his head is only an inch long. I can't think of a name for him though.

I've owned a ball python for 22 years. I bought her when she was the size of a pencil and she's a beautiful 5 foot long sweety. She's never done a mean thing her entire life. Keep them fed (every two to three weeks), comfortable (around 80F), and safe (locked cage and always supervised while out) and you will have a great pet for life. Literally. Vitamins help keep her skin shiny and her molts quick and complete.

I have had my Ball Python for about 4 months. He is a great pet. I have had no trouble getting him to eat. He loves to be held. He is my first snake. Ball Pythons are great beginner pets.

I have had my Ball Python for 2 or 3 months now. His name is Jazz. I have never had a pet snake until this one came along. He is a great pet. We feed him 2 mice a week. He loves to be held. He has not even acted like he was going to bite me. Ball Pythons are great pets for the begginer.

I have a male Granite Ball/Royal python. I've owned many reptiles before but I think ball Pythons have to be the best. They are easy to care for as long as you have time to regularly handle them. TIPS: NO HEAT ROCKS NO NEWSPAPER

We have a beautiful young royal python named Cleopatra. She didn't eat for the first couple weeks, but she loves to eat for us now. We wash our hands and take her out and play with her every day for about an hour. Every three days or so, we thaw a frozen "fuzzy" mouse for her. We put her back in her container and dangle it in front of her by the tail. We love to watch her gobble mice up.

One of the theories for the name "royal" python is that Cleopatra used to wear ball pythons around her wrist as a bracelet. Of course, we love to do the same thing!
