The Softer Side of Ball Pythons

Aggregator Meaghan here,

Here is a radio documentary on breeding ball pythons…

Unlike neighbouring communities, the Municipality of Trent Hills has an exotic pet by-law that restricts citizens from keep certain species. But one member of this small community is hoping this will soon change. The Municipality has announced plans to amend the current law that prohibits keeping snakes of the python and boa families unless under the direct care of a veterinarian. Will Moroz keeps his ball pythons at his father’s vet clinic, dodging the current laws but he is still hoping for change. Ball pythons are the smallest snakes in the python family. The snakes earn their name because of their tendency to curl up into a tight ball with their head hidden in the center when frightened or stressed. They are nonaggressive and grow no longer than 5 feet in length. Will breeds the valuable snakes that range in size from babies to adults, each with its own unique colour and pattern.
