    Well... at least if you're in Nevada you can release it into the wild when you're tired of it because it's 14 feet long and it won't become a nuisance species.

    Ball pythons rarely reach 7'.
    Are you feeding it live or frozen/thawed pinkies? UV lights are very important they need them for digestion etc.
    I had a 3' ball a 7' boa (she was kinda a bi#%h) and a 15' burmese.

    I'm not sure I'd care for a snake as a pet. When I was a kid I'd catch snakes & play with them for a few days, but then I'd let them go because I'd get tired of them. My mother didn't like me bringing them inside because she was afraid of them & one time I let one get loose & couldn't find him. She found him one day, when I was at school. Since that time, no snakes in the house! :)

    A buddy gave me a couple of baby snakes one time & I had them a couple of days until I found out they were copper heads.:( You know, those little stinkers don't look anything like their mama or papa!

    Baby copperheads ??? Might make a decent stew...

    A drop dead gorgeous girl I knew was single and I couldn't understand why; then a friend told me she had over 30 snakes living w her.

    Still thought about it though !

    Snakes are not pets. They are vermin and to be killed on sight. I will kill any snake on sight....

    Haha. Thanks for all the laughs. I love all animals even the nasty ones. We all are here just trying to survive. My son was bit by a rattlesnake a few years back. Almost killed him.

    Living in a rural area, I appreciate the fact that the snakes seem to have kept the rat/mouse population under control. Had a cotton mouth, unknown to me, living in my shop for a while & never had a rat problem. When I discovered him & carried him down to the woods, found the skeleton of a rat under the crate which he'd called home. Now, I wished I'd left him there as the rats have started making nests in the drawers with my tools! With traps & poison, I may have gotten rid of the because haven't seen signs just lately, but would have been easier to just let the snake do it.

    Your son or the snake?:D

    I hope he didn't have any long term issues. Snake bites can be nasty.l

    I love snakes but would never keep one as a pet (let alone name one Courtney, but I digress) I do everything I can to help them prosper. One bittersweet moment a few months ago I saw a large gopher snake in the road and I waited until it had moved off, but about 20 minutes later the resident hawk had picked it up and was flying off with it. I love the hawks and the snakes. Sometimes they come up against each other.

    Caught a California King snake the other day and brought it home. Hope he doesn't become hawk food.
