Lesser Pastel Royal Python

Royal Pythons are one of the most popular pet species in the UK because of both their lovely temperament and how easy they are to keep. They are beautifully marked and are now being bred in many different colours and patterns. Royal Pythons are sometime referred to as Ball Pythons, when they are scared they will roll into a ball with their head well protected in between its coils. They grow to around 1.2m long and are a heavily built snake, with a very gentle nature.

Description

Caring for your Python

For first-time owners we have provided a quick guide on the essential care tips for Calico Royal Pythons

Feeding

Feed your Python one defrosted rat or mouse once a week. Once they reach maturity, you can then begin to feed it on a fortnightly basis. Ensure that you defrost food in a refrigerator overnight and allow it to reach room temperature. You can either leave it in the enclosure near to your Python or feed it using tongs or tweezers.

Housing

Creating a suitable environment is critical for the well being of your snake.

It is recommended that all Pythons be kept in a wooden vivarium due to insulation needs. A hatchling Pythons require a 90cm long or larger vivarium, which can then be upgraded to minimum of 120cm vivarium once they reach adulthood. Ensure that you regularly clean the enclosure, removing waste as soon as possible and disinfecting water bowls and decor with reptile safe disinfectant spray.
