HOPE IS PENDING ADOPTION - WE ARE NOT TAKING ANY NEW APPLICATIONS FOR HOPE AT THIS TIME

Hi! My name is Hope.

I escaped from my enclosure and I was later found 7 months later in a closet, barely alive. My person had moved away so I was taken to the local shelter and then quickly transferred to the rescue to help get me back to health. It was touch and go for a while but I came back fighting and I am very happy and healthy and ready for my forever home!

Fun Fact about me! While I am a little shy at first, I do enjoy social time! 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.

My species can live a long and healthy life of up to 30 to 40 years. Bringing me into your family is a lifelong commitment, for both of us! Adult female ball pythons will average 3 to 5 feet long, and adult male ball pythons average 2 to 3 feet in size. As a full adult I can weigh between 3 and 5 lbs.

I will require my own habitat that is secure with the right diet, habitat, substrate, temperature, and humidity. Don’t worry, the rescue will provide you with all the information that you will need to prepare for my arrival.
