    Recommended Breeders?

    Hello!

    I'm looking to get my first ball python (a juvenile) this April and have jumped around looking for breeders. BHB is an option for me, however, sometimes they're a bit high priced. I'm mostly looking for healthy, decently priced animals that are preferably fed frozen/thawed mice. I'm fairly open to morphs, though, I refuse to purchase a spider morph. I live in Long Beach, MS, and I'm open to have them shipped to me but I'd be willing to do pick-up if they're close enough.

    There are a lot of good breeders out there so it will all come down to what you are looking for (genetics) your budget etc so the best place is to go on https://www.morphmarket.com/ and apply the proper filters and than do your research on the breeder.

    Seconding looking through morph market.
    Personally I recommend Royal Constrictor Designs (Garrick Demeyer). Great guy and great ball pythons! He's where I got my mystic potion from and my boy has been a feirce eater ever since!

    I have no idea if the ship or not but I used Bourben Ball Pythons from Louisville and they were great. Helped me well before and after the sale.

    I just recently bought 2 pied combos from Love Reptiles and Tallgrass Reptiles. Great customer service, and the snakes are beautiful! You can find them both on Morph Market, but Tallgrass also has a website.

    I also second Garrick Demeyer with Royal Constrictor but I'm extremely jealous you lucked out with a 'fierce eater'.

    (Omg of course I don't notice I misspelled fierce until just now lol)

    I must have been extremely lucky! He always gets super excited on feeding day and strikes like a pro.

    Also it's been a while, hello! Hope you've been doing well in these crazy times!

    I've purchased BPs from Stewart Reptiles as well as JT from On The Ball Pythons in San Antonio. Great experiences with both breeders...

    Haha....I wasn't trying to call you out for the misspelling It was just my jealousy of wishing I had a hungry eater. It's always a stressful time on feeding night for me. I can't remember the last time I saw a strike out of him. The last couple of months have been all drops with a return in the morning to see if he took it. I ended up going a size smaller this time around just to see if I could get him out of his 2-3 month fast and it worked. When they refusing all kinds of things go through you mind (i.e. is it because I put him in a larger enclosure, temps, humidity, need to change bedding, just normal fasting, etc..). Thank goodness the BOA is always ready to pounce
