Ball Python Care Sheet

House your Ball Python in a wooden cage with sliding glass doors. The cage should measure 90cm in length and 45cm in width and 45cm in height or the closest size you can get to these measurements.


Use newspaper, coconut husk or sphagnum moss as a bedding.


Lightly mist the bedding with water using a spray bottle once a week.


Provide fresh water in a water bowl.


Provide a hide box and a water bowl and cage decorations such as driftwood or plastic/silk plants ( the decoration is optional and is used to make the cage look nice)


Your Ball Python will be eating frozen hopper mice or rat fuzzies that you defrost in warm water. Feed 1 hopper mouse or 1 rat fuzzy once a week. After you have fed your snake don’t handle your snake for 3 days to allow your snake to digest it’s food.


Keep the temperature in the cage at between 25-30 degrees Celsius. Use a heat pad to heat the cage. Place the heat pad underneath the bedding on one side of the cage. Put the hide box on the side of the cage that has the heat pad on it. Do not allow the snake to get in direct contact with the heat pad to avoid the snake getting burnt.

Ball Pythons are very calm snakes and are great pet snakes if you want a snake you can hold and interact with


Do not hold or feed your Ball Python for 1 week after you get it, so it can get used to it’s new home.


DO NOT WORRY IF YOUR BALL PYTHON DOES NOT EAT EVERY WEEK. YOUR SNAKE DOES NOT NEED AS MUCH FOOD AS YOU WOULD GIVE A PUPPY OR KITTEN
