Ball pythons are considered to be easy to care for whether you’re a novice or expert snake owner. The ball python’s annual reproductive season usually takes place between September and November, but it’s also possible to breed them all year-round. The mother will produce a clutch of up to 14 eggs that stick to each other with an adhesive. She will coil around the clutch until the eggs are ready to hatch about a month or two later. The males do not seem to play any role in the care or development of the offspring. Ball pythons tend to have an average lifespan of about 10 years in the wild and some 20 years in captivity. However, one specimen from the Philadelphia Zoo supposedly lived some 50 years old. Ball pythons have five labial pits on either side of the mouth to sense heat or infrared radiation. This helps them find food when it becomes dark out. While they spend most of their time on the ground, ball pythons are also decent climbers and excellent swimmers. Males have large spurs on both sides of the body to grip the female during sex. Females have these spurs too, but they are smaller. The scientific name of the ball python is Python regius. The word Python derives from the Greek name of a huge mythological serpent killed by Apollo, whereas Regius means royal or kingly in Latin. This species is closely related to the Indian python and the African rock python in the same genus.
