    Re: Feeding my ball python fish

    Maybe aquatic species or garter snakes will, but I doubt Ball Pythons will successfully catch a fish and eat it.
    Ball Pythons don't really go out to the watering hole to fish in Africa. Haha. Kind of an amusing thought though.

    Does make for a rather amusing image, though. :p

    I personally would never try that.
    I used to have piranhas and all 3 of them got very ill and died from store bought feeder gold fish.
    I know that turtles eat fish, but I wonder if they're bodies are more equiped to handling various fish diseases, or if that's just part of the risk. I don't know much about them as pets. I would just think if a snake didn't eat it in the wild it might not be a good thing to try.

    Yeah,I had oscars and pacus back in the day and I fed them some gold fish and they all wound up with ick. No matter how much I tried n clean the tank one by one they all died.

    i wasn't going to do it,it doesn't seem realistic,but was just wondering.

    I had a checkered garter snake when I was a kid and it would eat fish out of the water bowl. I seriously doubt you would get a ball python to eat a fish though.

    Feeding my ball python fish

    I accidentally stepped on a 3 inch gecko in the once. I felt bad that it was still breathing, but could not move. I didn't want to toss it outside, so I put it in with my Adult BP. I came back in 10 minutes and it was gone! Must have been just a snack.

    Your Ball Python ate a gecko? I find this terribly hard to believe.

    Re: Feeding my ball python fish

    My baby garter snakes eat guppies from their water dishes. Once they're larger I'll switch them over to nightcrawlers, then mice pinkies. I don't know if a BP would do it though, fish are pretty cold and I thought BP's like their food warmer.

    Re: Feeding my ball python fish

    I was wondering about the temperature aspect of it too..

    And, considering my baby bp's penchant for eating rats butt-first, I wouldn't trust her not to injure herself eating a fish backwards.
