Abstract

The ball python, Python regius, is known for its docile demeanor and unique protective mechanism. This native West African species is relatively simple to care for, making it a popular snake among first-time reptile keepers and hobbyists alike. Natural history, husbandry, and common health problems are reviewed in this article, which is intended to supplement discussion between the veterinarian and client.
