My Ball Python, Velvet has a really comical personality. I have taken numerous pictures of her and have decided to share the cuteness with the Etsy community! She is a great ambassador to show the world how wonderful these snakes really are! Just kidding with the title! She is a total sweetheart and doesn't have a mean bone in her body.

Breeders have developed many exciting colors and patterns in Ball Pythons, as they breed readily and color and pattern mutations occur fairly often. Thus they have become very popular both as pets and for breeding as a hobby.

Velvet is what is called a Butter Black Pewter (a morph combo of 3 different genes; Butter, Black Pastel, and Cinnamon).

Ball Pythons live an average of about 20 years (longer than most dogs live), and they make excellent exotic pets because they are relatively easy to care for and most of them are very docile and easy-going, yet inquisitive. Velvet will sit on my lap and watch TV with me on my bed

Velvet is currently 2 years of age and about 3 feet long.

Ball Pythons rarely grow any longer than 5 feet, so compared to many other pythons don't take up much space in the home.

Very non-aggressive in temperament, Ball Pythons as a general rule are a little on the shy side, but if handled regularly make interesting and fun companions and they warm up to their human owners quite nicely. The name "Ball Python" comes from the habit they have of coiling up in a Ball when scared. This is how they protect their head from predators. They are also called "Royal Pythons" because African royal women historically wore them around the wrist as bracelets. The scientific name for them is Python Regius.

They come from Africa and their natural habitat is in underground rodent burrows. They are ambush predators, lying in wait for small African Soft-furred rats and other small prey to wander into their domain. They are non-venomous, disabling and constricting their prey so that they can eat them.

In recent years Congress has sought because of misplaced ignorance and fear to outlaw many of the snakes classified as constrictors, playing upon the irrational fears of snakes commonly held by the general public.

The reptile community has been trying to preserve the rights of responsible owners to keep these beautiful and elegant snakes. As of yet most of the legislation has focused on larger constrictors such as African Rock Pythons, and Anacondas, (not Ball Pythons) but there are some legislators who given their choice would outlaw all of the constrictors. Selective breeding is preserving these beauties for generations to enjoy. You can get all the facts on this from USARK; http://usark.org/
