    My new ball python has arrived!

    This is my new son, Saffron!

    He was hatched on August 18th, 2018 (a bit older than I expected, but thatís not much of an issue), is eating adult mice, and weighs 170 grams. He is a super pastel.

    So far he is very curious, hasnít balled up at all, and is exploring his quarantine enclosure.

    Does he look alright? Does he seem like a good weight for his age?

    He was ordered from XYZReptiles.

    His size/weight looks fine to me...and he's totally gorgeous! (as if you don't know, lol) I think you made a good choice, & getting one that's well-started
    (like he is, from 2018) is a plus, not a minus, IMO.

    ESPECIALLY for your first snake, you chose well, as far as I can tell. But do check him thoroughly & repeatedly for mites in the cage or on him, just in case.

    Keep his cage on the "sparce" side (on white paper towels for substrate, no plants- fake or otherwise, & no wood decor that mites can hide in for a while to be safe).

    I donít know how Iím going to survive without handling this boy! I was originally planning on waiting for 3 successful meals to handle, but would a little more than a week suffice?
