    Dream came true



    This is Noddle, he is about to be one year old, according to the breeder and weights around 200grams, i would like to know if that's okay.

    I'm from Costa Rica and it's been my dream to have a ball python for many years and a couple of years ago was the first time that there's been available on the market, but at a very high price. Now that i've been able to fulfill my wish i wanna take care of him the best i can. If you wish to know my husbandry please ask and i've had him for around a month a half, eating every 7 days one adult mouse or appropiate size rat... thanks!!

    Congrats. He's eating regularly so it sounds like your doing it right. I can't comment on the weight I'm just getting back into this after a bit of a break from snakes. Good luck with your new friend.

    Pretty sure 200g for a yearling is on the small side BUT he looks good so you can start building him up gradually now .. great that he's eating as well

    Iím a little confused. My Perseus turned a year old about a month ago and he is 1,000 grams? He has never missed a meal and I have never feed in less than 7 days..... why so different? Am I over feeding?

    The breeder was probably maintenance feeding him so he wouldn't grow as fast.
