    First ever ball python! So obsessed!

    Hello everyone! I'm a bit new to this forum and to ball python keeping, but, I figured I'd show you all my very first ball python!

    He he is a 1.0 Fire Genetic Stripe (according to breeder), and his name is Dewey. I don't have any pictures of him besides the one the breeder has sent me since I'm working on ~perfecting~ his terrarium before I get him shipped. Nonetheless, I'm in love! I'm a sucker for anything with the genetic stripe gene though, so it's not unexpected for me lol.

    If anyone's wondering where I am receiving him from, I purchased him from Royal Constrictor Designs run by Garrick DeMeyer. The customer service was A+ and I have yet to find a bad review of him or his business regarding health of the snakes. Anyone else purchase a ball python, crested gecko, or other animal from him? I'd love to hear!

    Okay enough yapping, here's the pic!



    Lemme know what you guys think of the lil guy! Thanks a bunch for reading!

    Super-nice looking snake. I bet he will look awesome as a big, fat adult python!

    Congrats and a warm welcome! I'm also a new keeper and got my first ball python from the same breeder! So definitely agreeing Garrick has amazing service and incredible snakes! I admit I had considered getting to one of his butter genetic stripes before I fell in love with my mystic potion. But darn there were so many other morphs from him I wanted! Lol

    So excited for you! When is your little guy coming home?

    Thanks so much!! I can't wait to see his chubby self when he gets older (not that I want him overweight lol). I'll be posting plenty of updates once I actually get him shipped home, haha.

    The males don't really get that fat actually. They get long, but not thick. I like the females better, because they get HUGE, and their pattern looks even more dramatic as full-blown thick adults.

    Yeah, Garrick is awesome and I'm so glad I found him.

    Mystic. Potions. Are. So. Beautiful. If I had the budget, I'd totally get one of those beauties. Would you mind sharing a pic? But I still love Dewey, and I think he looks really good compared to what I got him for, if I must say so. The genetic stripes... haha, they always get me.

    It really depends on when I can get out to do some shopping. I posted a thread on this, but I'll give a summary :3. I'm having some problems with my cool side and ambient temps, so after posting a thread I've figured out what I need to purchase. I don't want him home until I can get my terrarium conditions spot on, and right now it's not really a definite as to when that'll happen. POSSIBLY within the next couple of weeks or so. Thanks a bunch for the welcome also! This place is so great, and the people on here are so amazing. I've been lurking on this forum, and I'm so glad I finally registered myself!

    Haha, jk jk. But yeah, I decided to go with a male because I didn't wanna freak my family out and they're smaller than the ladies, and also because I just seem to gravitate towards male animals when I get pets. It's weird, lol. Ball pythons as a species though I consider a little chubby, hehe.

    He's lovely, I love anything striped too! I got a mystic potion with a stripe down his back. So fun to watch them slither when they have a stripe.

    Thank you! And I agree 100%... *slither slither* I've been so excited lately that I can't sleep haha. I'm just like, "holy shiz.. I did it... I'm actually getting a snake!". Ahh, how much I love the noodles of the reptiles world.

    Dang look at you gettin' the best of both worlds there! Very awesome!

    Of course! Here is the thread I have for him

    Good on you for giving yourself plenty of time to make sure your set up is ready. I'm sure Dewey will be one happy snek when it's time and he's settled
