How to Successfully Breed Ball Pythons
Make sure the snakes have reached maturity before breeding. It is important that the reptiles you intend to breed are old enough and large enough. A male ball python typically needs to weigh over 400 grams and be at least one year old. While females as small as 1200 grams have been successfully bred, we recommend that female ball pythons be at least 2 years old and 1800 grams in order to breed. The process is too demanding on smaller snakes to produce a viable clutch of eggs for incubation.
