88 Pages. ©2003.
The ball python appeals to enthusiasts for many reasons – its form, color, and pattern are attractive and a way that is distinctively African; it doesn’t attain a size that is a problem to maintain; and it readily becomes tame and is easy to handle. But for all these pluses, caring for a ball python can be quite challenging. The Ball Python Manual is filled with the most up-to-date information on selecting, acclimating, housing, and maintaining this fascinating snake. You’ll also find information on the husbandry and propagation of this often misunderstood species, including tips on how to overcome problems with feeding and diseases.
