Off topic but hey hope some enjoy and im also looking for someone with a male in the near future...
This is my female ball python or Python regius which translates to Royal Python.. Ive had it from just after a hatchling and is currently just under twenty inches..
It should reach three feet within the first three years making five to six feet as an adult..
The natural lifespan ranks amongst the highest for snake species and captive raised can reach twenty to thirty years old..
The longest living on record reached 47 years of age..
Ive handled this one regularly and it is happy to feed from my hand taking small mice and rats every three days..
It is an excellent feeder which also is a good guide to not being stressed as problem snakes can need force feeding as a last resort or can go up to 22 months before feeding..
Although off topic hope its been of interest
