A & M Ball Pythons - Information page

Taking care of your ball python

It is important that you learn how to properly care for your new ball python, which is why we compiled a list of MUST READ articles, as well as links to other cool ball python related stuff.

Ball python care sheets are a dime a dozen and, it is for this reason then, that the A & M Ball Pythons Team have decided not to add to the already extensive list, but to provide you with links to the most informative, existing care sheets out there.  Other than the books we purchased, these are the links that we used to learn more about these amazing animals.  We also have a few articles on genetics, which, at first, can seem intimidating, but even this tricky subject can be simplified when you have the right information at hand.

Should you, after all of this, still require specific information regarding your ball python and its care, please feel free to click the little envelope icon at the bottom of the page.  It is our aim to help where we can and to ultimately expand the ball python community, not only in Cape Town, but in South Africa too.  So, if you need assistance or if you have a question, fire up that contact form and let's hear from you.
