    This book is ok

    This book is ok. It had some good tips in it, but it mainly focused on ball pythons that were taken from the wild. The book gives in depth instructions on how to get your wild born ball ready for captivity and how often it needs to be held and it also give a lot of detail on how to get the wild caught python to eat and the various diseases that the snake may have. If you are a new owner of a captive bred ball or would like some in depth details about breeding and problems that may occur with a ball this is not really the book for you. This book also gives descriptions of the different colorings of balls and had very good pictures illustrating the different color patterns on the snakes. It gives tips on breeding and how different types can get different results
