    These are my favorite ball python care resources. I hope they help!

    - BallPythons.net Forums
    - ReptiFiles' Ball Python Care Guide
    - Ball Python Enthusiasts on Facebook

    A note about Ball Python Enthusiasts: They have really great info in the files, and the admins and senior members tend to be very knowledgeable. That being said, it's a rough group to be a part of, as they can be extremely rude and like to make fun of common or "dumb" questions, creating a toxic environment. But if you don't mind lurking for your information and reading group files rather than posting to the group, it's an informative resource.

    Thank you! I think the only issue I have with all the information is cage aggression. I work at a pet store and I feed the snakes in their tanks - and I gotta tell ya - regardless of "letting them know I'm there", they sure as hell still try and go for my face. Their eyes remain dilated when awake and will try and strike at anyone. Even 36 hours after digestion and low handling. They are just straight up aggressive.

    They eat every week, poop regularly, have bowls to soak in, etc. I'm not afraid of them, but dealing with them is a pain.

    Cage aggression is actually a myth. Usually when a ball python acts aggressive, it means something is wrong and they're feeling uncomfortable (defensiveness). This can be due to a number of factors — incorrect temps, humidity, terrarium too large, cohabitation, not enough food, not enough hides, etc. While there are some balls with naturally salty personalities, a happy ball python is usually a calm ball python.
