So, I've been seriously considering getting a ball python. I've always wanted a snake and I'm finally getting serious about it. I already have the cage lined up. I don't know the exact size but I've seen it and it's pretty good sized.
I'm looking into getting either a yearling or a full sized adult.
This is the unit
I'm wanting to know about daily care and let me see your set ups!
But mostly, I'm wondering about feeding. I'm not feeding live. I just don't think I could do it having had mice and rats as pets for so long, also knowing it can be dangerous for the snake.
I'm wondering what sized mouse/rat a growing/adult ball python would need and where do you guys buy yours? I did a short google and they seem... insanely expensive. One had a two pack of rats for almost $20 and I can buy 4 or 5 live ones for that, not to mention the mice.
