Ball Pythons - Ultramel
Common Name: Ball Python
Genetics: Ultramel (Recessive)
Food: It might take your new ball python a little bit of time to adjust to its new surroundings. Avoid handing your Ball Python until it has eaten on its own. In the beginning it might be a stubborn eater. It is best if you feed your Ball Python at night. Baby ball pythons eat fuzzy mice once a week. You can increase the size of the food as the snake grows. Adult snakes should be fed every two weeks. Frozen/thawed foods are the best to feed your python. If you do feed it live food be careful as live food might be able to fight back and hurt your python. Provide a bowl of chlorine-free water large enough for the python to soak in.
Native to: West Africa
Maximum Length: 3-5 feet
Life Span: 15-20 years
Please Note: The weights and lengths of our animals may vary slightly
Ultramel Ball pythons started from a wild caught ball python that entered the US back in the late nineties. It was confused with caramel ball pythons at the time and has proven to be a completely different stand alone trait. This under rated ball python keeps it beautiful orange color into adult hood and even brightens as is grows.
