GUMMY I IS PENDING ADOPTION - WE ARE NOT TAKING ANY MORE APPLICATIONS FOR HIM AT THI TIME

Hi! My name is Gummy!

I was found as a stay and taken to a shelter where I was then transferred to rescue to help me to find my forever home. I was in the middle of a shed which when I was done it was revealed I had scrapes all down my spine. Don't worry though, they are all healed now thanks to the care of the rescue!

Fun Fact about me! I am very sweet and social and I love to be held. I would love to be out and about as often as possible. 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.

Though there is no way to really tell what age I am, based on my size I am considered a young adult. 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.

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!

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.
