Juvenile Fancy Balll Python is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my boy! I got my Ball Python, Loki, about 2 months ago. He is a juvenile and like most juveniles, can have his grumpy days. It took him a while to get used to me but I kept holding him every night before I went to bed for about 5-10 minutes. He would curl up whenever I tried to grab him but now he can't wait to wrap around my arm! I hold him whenever I'm doing homework, cleaning his tank, or even when I'm doing dishes! He just chills on my neck and shoulders. No regrets with my baby boy and I definitely recommend as your first snake! Only thing is that you need to be patient at first, he will eventually start warming up to you and love you just like you love him! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic pet! I got my wonderful guy a little over a month ago. He is the best pet I have ever had with beautiful colors. He let's me hold him no matter what the time and has never tried to bite. I would fully recommend getting a snake however every snakes personality is different. I am super happy with him and can't wait to see him grow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Snake We got Jordan about a month ago for my youngest child after my oldest got a full grown one. I carefully explained all the responsibilities that my 7 year old would have with chosing a snake. She picked Jordan after looking at several different ones at several different stores. Petsmart feeds frozen but Jordan switched to live with the first feeding. My daughter does not feed her I do and we make sure to feed outside of the habitat. We have four ball pythons of different age and size but Jordan is the only one we have bought from a Petsmart store.. We also bought a Bearded Dragon from Petsmart and she is awesome as well.. Both handle well and are mild tempered reptiles... Love the prices, products, and animals...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent snake choice! We got our fancy python recently. She's very, very docile. Perfect personality. She ate for the first time today. She transferred well and seems to like her new home. Definitely worth the extra money. Not to mention her pattern and color are more than stunning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love Her! In August, I fell in love with keeping reptiles. I have always loved reptiles, dinosaurs, dragons, etc unlike other girls my age who liked ponies and princesses. Over the summer, I wanted a dog. My mom said no, and I resorted to a species I found out about called the crested gecko. After months of researching, I got one! This is my 4th month having him. Two weeks ago, on Friday, after months of convincing, my mom said she’d allow me to have a ball python. I was so happy that I cried in the store. A week later, I gathered all my supplies and set up a tank. The ball pythons at the store I went to (the one in Cali with the Michael’s and Starbucks) were in amazing hands. The staff genuinely cared about these animals and were knowledgeable in their husbandry. My fancy ball python was on sale for 60 dollars! The staff handled her frequently and they even “bonded” with her and needed time to say goodbye. She had some shed on her head, when i got home, she wasn’t head shy at all. She periscopes all the time and wraps around in my hair. She is a chubby girl, 30 inches long, which I am happy about because i LOVE big snakes. This is a long review but I am so happy with my girl. Im not sure what morph she is but nevertheless, she’s adorable and I wouldn’t give her up for the world.

What size tank would be suitable for this snake to live from baby to full grown? 

Asked by: ReptileMomma
Ok listen here it just depends on the snakes personality if it starts to get cage aggression start to feed it outside it's tank so it won't associate your hand has food and be sure to take it out when it's ready so it will know that it's cage being open isn't just food

How do I feed my fancy ball python I just got her a week ago the lady told me to feed her frozen thawed mice on Friday nights but she has not ate her food help pls....

Asked by: Daniel11
This question can’t be answered from the information you gave. What are your temperatures and humidity like? Tub or tank? When did you get him? Are your sides blacked out? Does he have hides? Scenting a mouse with bedding isn’t necessary, it’s already a mouse. You only scent for mouse to rat or vice versa. The answer to my questions can get you a better response.

Does it bite

Asked by: Joshua2089
It certainly can, but it is unlikely. Most bites are accidents (snake misses its food and accidentally bites hand, etc.) but if it does bite outside of feeding time, it is not out of aggression, but rather fear/defensiveness.

 What type of cage do I need for it how many gallons does it have to be 

Asked by: Reptiles08
For a baby no more than 25 gallons. When they grow a good rule of thumb is the length plus the width needs to equal their length. The live in termite mounds in the wild so to much space stresses them out.

Is it defanged? Does it still have its vemom glands?

Asked by: Zbro
Ball pythons are not venomous. Only venomous snakes have venom glands and fangs. These snakes actually have several hook shaped teeth.

Do these snakes bite

Asked by: Sheldon33
All snakes are going to bite at some point. The only reasons if your ball python were to bite are because either A) You scared it or provoked it, B) You smell like food, C) Its a hatchling with a bad attitude, or D) Its cage defensive.

Can I see pictures of what you have in stock? also, they shouldn’t be called fancy. The morph of that particular snake should be identified properly, along with age, length, feeding schedule, when last ate, last shed, heat/humidity levels, etc.

Asked by: Marissa Roberts
Woah Marissa. You have to remember, this isn't a high-end breeder. This is a store chain with 1,000+ locations. "Fancy" refers to any other morph except Normal. If you want records or to see whats in stock, you should head to your local store and ask an employee about them. The website (plainly) covers all locations, and can't specifically tell you about whats in your area. Because its a store chain, they often don't know about the age of the snake, the length is determined by costumer, feeding schedule is often locked away, last shed is usually unknown, and the heat/humidity levels aren't often identified/given to the public. This should all be taken care of AFTER the snake has been purchased and taken home.

will the python protect or bite is owner?

Asked by: Navikon
Most of the time, bite. A ball python isn't like a dog and won't know how/when to protect its owner. It won't even care.
