Hi! My name is Noodle!

I was surrendered to the shelter and transferred to rescue to help me find my new home! I had to grow a bit larger first do I have been in foster care for several months.

Fun Fact about me! I only like to eat mice! Not sure why but I just haven't been able to graduate to rats yet.

While I am still young, I am also a decent size. Because my previous person didn't have much time for me, I am very shy and I ball up when being handled. I need someone who is willing to just be patient with me and let me unball in my own time. Watching TV while I chill on your lap helps!

Being nocturnal, I spend most of the day sleeping in my hide but I do like to come out in the evening to explore my enclosure. 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!

Animal Care Reference Material:

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.
