    I love them all. They are just so much fun. Currently I have a het albino, and an albino blood. I just love the deep red colors that they get. I find it so fun to have them get huffy with me when they want to be left alone, but they calm down nicely once I have them out.

    Yes. Blood pythons are a seperate species from balls. There have been a few hybrid projects between the 2 species though so it shows that they are fairly similar.

    Re: Contemplating bloods

    They are only similar in a sense that they are both of the family Pythonidae.

    These are 2 completely different species from 2 totally different continents.

    To want to house 2 different species together in cohabitation is non sense. Let alone 2 snakes of the same species. The only time 2 snakes should spend any time together is for breeding purposes.

    1. I used the word "fairly", meaning yea their care isnt identical but not completely different. Im aware that theyre from a more tropical environment so obviously their humidity has to be higher than balls. And they get bigger so a bigger enclosure is a must. But other than those two things is there that much more differences? I was under the impression bloods were fairly easy to care for... But i have never had any so im not speaking from experience...
    2. I never said housing them together is a good idea. I only said i know of some hybrid projects between the two species. Like you said, the only time two snakes should be together is for breeding. Thats what a hybrid project would be.

    Re: Contemplating bloods

    Cool, and yeah my response wasn't personal.

    I can come off that way sometimes, it's just that I am passionate about these animals and am a firm anti hybrid guy.

    Bloods are fairly easy to care for yes, but do have different husbandry requirements like you said.

    They are also a bit more susceptible to RI's so close attention needs to be paid to temperatures, both too high and too low, as well as humidity, water change frequency and ventilation.

    Having kept Balls and animals of the Short Tail complex, I can say that Balls are a breeze compared to Bloods, in my experience. But once you have everything worked out, they are pretty self sufficient.

    I would definitely make sure someone has some snake keeping experience under their belt before they get a Blood. They're just not as forgiving as some of the other species out there.

    But take care of them and they are very rewarding
