- Names: Ball (Python regius)
- Size: Up to 5 feet
- Lifespan: Typically 20 to 30 years, but some love to be more than that
The ball python is a decent snake for a new snake owner. Growing to be about 5 feet long when mature, ball pythons are not as vast as most constricting snakes that people keep as pets but they are very accommodating and quite easy to handle.
