Hi! My name is Maleficent!

I was brought into the shelter as emergency boarding and then transferred to rescue to help me find my forever home!

I'm a young snake and I love being held and checking out new things! Being nocturnal, I spend most of the day sleeping in my hide but I do like to come out in the evening to socialize.

I'm also very healthy and I am a great eater! As a young and active ball python, I require my own habitat that is secure. I have managed to get out on a few occasions so my habitat will require a lock.

With the right diet, habitat, substrate, temperature, and humidity I can live a long and healthy life of up to 30 to 40 years! Though I am considered on the small side now, I can get as big as 5 feet, as a female, maybe even bigger!

If you think we may be a good match, or you would like to get to know me better, please click the Adoption Application button below and you will be contacted to set up a date!

PLEASE NOTE: WE DO NOT SHIP OUR ANIMALS. We can only accept applications from interested parties who are in or near San Diego County, California at this time.

Description:
The ball python is a python species native to West and Central Africa, where it lives in grasslands and shrub lands. This nonvenomous constrictor is the smallest of the African pythons, growing to a maximum length of 4 to 5 feet. The name 'ball python' refers to its tendency to curl into a ball when stressed or frightened. They can live up to 30 years with proper care. They are carnivorous and will require a regular supply of rodents.
