How do you care for a ball python?

Is it legal to keep them?

Ball pythons are perfectly legal to keep in the U.S. I'm not sure about other countries, but it's not an endangered snake so I see no issues. They need at least a 50 gallon terrarium (as they will grow quite large), basking lamp, water bowl, substrate and a hiding place.

Yes it is legal in most if not all US states, states have different laws regarding the legality of certain snakes, so check your state's laws. Make sure it has enough living space, they get very big. If it is small, feed it only pinkies or dead mice, live mice can bite back and injure your snake.
