Ball pythons are beginner snakes and make good pets. As long as you do your research and have the proper housing, they are a breeze to care for.

Reticulated ball pythons are snakes that are relatives of the ball python and can grow up to 25 feet and can weigh up to 300 pounds. They can live up to 30 or more years

Reticulated ball pythons (Python reticulatus) aren't for new snake owners. They average about 15 feet long when grown and can be pretty aggressive. Regular ball pythons (Python regius) are better.


Answer by  Tiera19 (97)

These pythons can grow over 33 feet, are very skilled climbers, and they can eat things ranging from mice to pigs, depending on the size of the snake.

Reticulated ball pythons are native Asian reptiles. They can grow up to 30 feet and weigh in excess of 300 pounds. They are considered a dangerous animal and they are not considered to be a pet for amateurs. They can live 20 to 30 years in captivity, so they are considered to be a long term investment in care.

They are the world's longest snake. They can grow up to 28 feet and even longer. To have one as a pet you should have previous experience with large snakes.

You should do some serious research before allowing your son to get a ball python. You need to know how to care for them properly before getting one.


Answer by  Roy82 (29)

Reticulated ball pythons are snakes that are usually between 4-6 feet long and are constrictors. Which mean they squeeze their prey to kill them.


Answer by  LMSmegal (81)

There is no such thing as a reticulated ball python. The reticulated python is a large, aggressive species of snake of 20+ feet. A ball python is a different species.

They are a serpant and they are really hard to keep in a cage and they have to be taken out and let swim when they are shedding it helps the old skin come off or you have to buy shed eeze for them it helps shed their skin as well and when full grown they are big they stink.
