    Greetings from NY!

    Hello everyone, I am new to the python keeping world, and I just joined the forum yesterday. I've been doing a ton of research on Ball Pythons the last few months, and I finally made the leap to get myself one a few days ago. He arrived in the mail safe and sound yesterday.

    I'm very excited to dive into Ball Pythons. I have multiple Bearded Dragons ranging from a few months old to 3 years old, so I do have some experience with reptiles, however I've just gotten into snakes in general over the last few months. I also have a young Motley Corn Snake that's been doing really well.

    I look forward to seeing you all around, and I'm hoping to learn from experienced snake keepers being here. I've attached a picture of my guy from when I unboxed him, he's a blue eyed leucistic Ball Python.

    He doesn't have a name yet, I've been trying to let a name come to me since I ordered him. I'm open to any suggestions!

    Not to worry...I usually wait until something "clicks"...I see a trait or quirk that suggests a name, etc. Sometimes I go thru a name dictionary too & a name will 'jump out' at me.

    I'm actually very excited. I thawed out a mouse for my corn snake but he didn't want it, so I figured I'd try this guy out.. He wouldn't take it from the tongs, but he seemed very interested, so I left the mouse in front of him. He took a few nibbles, and then oriented himself right and ate it. I'm hoping he'll be an easy feeder if he's eating on the second day home. I didn't expect him to take it at all, I'm very happy.

    I'm thinking about naming him Leviathan, or maybe Osiris? Hawke? I'm still kind of brainstorming.
