We guarantee that every animal is honestly represented, accurately sexed, free of parasites, and feeding as advertised. You are buying the exact animal pictured, directly from a veterinarian with decades of experience keeping and reproducing reptiles. Our breeders are carefully selected from some of the best bloodlines in the country. Every new animal entering the facility goes through a strict quarantine, and we have never had mites, GI parasites, or respiratory infections enter our main collection. You will not find cleaner animals on the market. We guarantee health for 30 days.* Please report any problems as soon as possible. We take great pride in our animals, as well as our customer service, and we welcome all husbandry or health related questions.
We guarantee that every animal produced here will always have a home, and will always accept back any animal that we produce. If you can no longer keep an animal, and cannot find it an acceptable new home, please DO NOT RELEASE it, euthanize it, or neglect it. Contact us!

* Note that the stress of shipping and a new environment, can sometimes cause ball pythons to go off their food. Rarely this can last longer than 30 days and this is not necessarily a sign of poor health. All ball pythons are feeding well at the time of sale, and will come with information about the husbandry and eating habits that they are accustomed to. We recommend you replicate these these conditions as closely as possible to reduce stress until your snake is eating well. If your snake has not eaten within 10 days of arriving, please contact us and we will work with you to get them started.
