Also known as royal pythons, ball pythons prefer grasslands and open forests. Ball pythons can be found on or under the forest floor and become active during dawn and dusk.
- After laying their eggs, female ball pythons coil around their clutch of eggs until the offspring hatch, then they are on their own.
- Ball pythons are known for “balling”, which is when they form a tight ball with their head at the center.
- Female ball pythons are generally larger than males ball pythons.
