Ball python for adoption

Shelter rescued Ball Python needs a new home!

I've had this boy for almost a year now and I am confident that he is healthy so his ready for a new, permanent home.

This BP was an owner turn-in. He is nearly 4 feet long and beautiful but has trouble shedding at times. Since I took him in a year ago, I've had to manually remove a lense cover twice and with nearly every shed, he must have a soak and rub down in order to fully shed.

This sweet boy MUST to go to an experience home because of his shedding difficulties. I've housed him on newspaper but he would do well on bark chips that could be misted regularly to keep the humidity up. He's been housed with another ball python that has no problems shedding so this snake just has particular needs.

He is an aggressive eater and will eat 3 or 3 medium sized rats every 10 days.

I'm asking for a shelter donation of $35 for him, and shipping if someone local doesn't come and get him. Please send me an email if interested. Thanks!!

Hi Dan

I am my local shelter's reptile contact person. When they get reptiles in, they call me and I come to get them. When I pick up the animal, I give them an adoption fee and then, if I find a home for them, I ask for what I gave to the shelter (this way the person adopting the animal pays the adoption fee)'s the only reimbursement I get. I make nothing from rescues.

Vet visits, food bills, housing, etc. all comes out of my pocket. I usually take a loss because some of the rescues I take in, don't make it, never get adopted out because of their problems and others, I just give away. I take in rescues because I love reptiles, not because I make anything from the them. LOL!

In the last year and a half, I've taken in 4 boas, 3 ball pythons, a ratsnake, a gopher and 2 water dragons. One of the boas died 3 days after bringing it home, and I lost the gopher too. She had open wounds all over her body and didn't make it. I placed the dragons, one ball python and 2 of the boas; 1 boa, 2 balls and the ratsnake are here but this ball is the only one that will be adopted out.

Sorry about that! LOL!! I didn't mean to ramble on so. But sure, we can work something out. I've seen you around on forums enough to know that this snake would be in good hands. Send me an email and we'll talk privately.

Hey..I'm interested in your snake.

Hey, I'm highly interested in your Ball Python. I have an empty 100 gallon, approx 4-4.5 ft long, and would definately like to fill it with your adoptee. I ended up selling my Tegu, due to lack of his daily walks he needed, and I felt the tank he was in was getting small for him. I am willing to pay your 35 dollars or poss. a few dollars more. Thank you for your time, Darren. if you would kindly email me. Thanks Again!

Hi Darren. He lives in a 20 gallon now so he'd be a spoiled rotten baby in 100 gallons! LOL!!

I've been talking to Dan but I'm not sure if he's still interesed. Let me give him a couple more days and if he doesn't get ahold of me over the weekend, send me an email on Monday, or I'll email you. Sound good?

Hey again

Yes mam, sounds good. I'm still very interested in your snake, so e-mail me asap on the Dan situation. I appreciate your time, Thanks again, Darren.
