Native to Africa, these snakes are routinely imported as pets. They get their name because they coil into a ball shape with thier heads in the center as a defense tactic.
“Designer” patterns are bred and sold for tens of thousands of dollars. The average life span of a ball python is 20-30 years. Also known as the “royal python” because royalty would wear them like jewelry.
