My Friend's Ball Python

Yesterday my friend brought his Ball Python to our house, her name is Slug :) She opened her mouth and tried to bite my brother! She is a very small python in length but quite fat because she was fed last week. She is going to shed her skin in 2 or 3 days. Did you know that when snakes are shedding their skin they are blind? My friend feeds her every 2 weeks with frozen rats.

Ball Pythons are from Africa but are common pets due to the fact that they are not aggressive.  Here are some facts about the ball python:

- Their life span is 20-30 years (record 48)
- They can lay up to 10 eggs
- Average incubation time: 56 days
- They eat small rodents like mice and rat
