I’m one of the smallest members of the Python family.

I’m also called a Ball Python as I like to curl up into a ball when I’m scared. I’m not venomous as I am what’s known as a constrictor. I make a great pet as I don’t mind being handled and rarely bite, even in the wild. I have camouflage markings to hide in vegetation.
