Ball Python Twins
The Ball Python is not presently considered endangered, but their numbers in the wild are steadily declining due to habitat destruction and pet trade exploitation. Ball Pythons are the most popular pet snake due to their beautiful coloration, docile personality and relatively small size. Typically, adult Ball Pythons will reach about one meter in length, and weigh approximately two kilograms. Contributing further to Ball Python’s decline in the wild, they are hunted for food and their beautiful skin is used for decoration.
Snake lovers should ensure that their pet Ball Python is captive bred, rather than imported from their natural habitat in Africa where the young, hatched from wild eggs, are exported by the thousands.
