Pearl ball pythons are a small, colorful snake species that grow to only about 3 feet in length.


They are relatively easy to care for, but they have some special needs that aren’t always obvious to the novice snake owner.


Here are some things you should know before buying your first pearl ball python.


Some Characteristics of Pearl Ball Pythons


They’re very small

Pearl ball pythons may be named after their large size, but it’s not actually true.


They’re small snakes and can fit into the palm of your hand when fully grown.


If you’re used to handling larger snakes like corn snakes and kingsnakes, pearl balls will feel tiny in comparison.


They’re shy

Because of their small size and shy nature, many people who buy them as pets end up returning them because they don’t realize how challenging it is to care for a pet that doesn’t want to be handled or interacted with much at all.


This can be especially difficult if you’ve had experience with other snakes before getting one of these guys because they’re so different from other species.


They need heat

Since they are from sub-Saharan Africa, pearl balls do best when kept warm at about 80 degrees Fahrenheit during their active seasons (spring through fall).
