The royal python is also called a "ball python" because it tends to curl into a ball when stressed or scared, protecting the head in the center of the spool. The name "Royal Python" (Latin regius) is based on the story of Cleopatra carrying the snake around her wrist.


They are called kings because of their ability to kill and eat the snakes with bells, to whose venom they are immune.

It eats rodents, small birds, chickens, and lizards, and like non-venomous snakes, it kills its food via constriction. California High Snake Royal Chicken's Age: Chicken.


They are a good choice as pets because they are not too big, they are not poisonous, they have vibrant colors and they are easy enough to handle for beginners.
