    My oldest was 22 years with me when it passed, but it was an adult WC when I received him, so unknown actual age.

    Re: How old is/was your oldest ball python

    Most of ours are hatchling-6 years old but my sons first pet Ball Python will be 12 in December. He is a normal and even though he is surrounded now by genetics of all sorts he has a tub for life. He is also the only one with a name lol. The rest all have ID numbers.

    Okay, going off topic but does that hand emoji have 6 fingers? It got me going through the emojis on this site and there's a lot of good ones.

    I have one male wild type python that I bought as a captive hatched baby in 1993. So far I do not notice changes in behavior. He still has bouts of just wanting to hide and bouts of wanting to explore and not eat ( looking for a girlfriend?).

    The one thing I found that you can count on about Balls is that they are consistent about their inconsistentcy.

    Of course buying from a reputable breeder is important, but does morphology play a role in life expectancy?
