    Re: How old is/was your oldest ball python

    Hi,

    Given that the first morph was in 1992 and the oldest ball python was 47 years+ when it died I honestly believe this is an unanswerable question.

    That's awesome! How long have you had her? From a hatchling, or later?

    Be sure to answer the above poll- it makes for interesting statistics.

    Last weekend I visited an old college roommate I hadn't seen in 17 years. He's a breeder and started back when we were in school. So his first gen breeders are all 27-29'ish years old now. AND I will say this; he is/was a notorious power feeder (as were all of the local breeders I knew at that time). He fed those snakes 2-3x a week to get them to size.

    It was sobering to see them about 30 years later, healthy, none were obese, no health issues. Purely anecdotal, but I've seen a lot of posts here that frequent feeding shorten a snake's life. - his have had no issues. And the two other breeders I know haven't run into any either.
