Anyone have pet snakes? I have two Ball Pythons, Gloria and Monte. Ball Pythons never grow much larger than six foot and thats pretty large for a Ball. My two are about five each maybe a little longer but fully grown. Gloria is about eight years old and Monte is about five. They are really nice, not noisey at all. They eat large size feeder rats, one every two or three weeks. They are well socialized and like people and to be handled. They live in seprate 55 gal tanks, but come out alot. People think snakes are slimey and moist, but they are soft and dry.
