Do a google search you should then get the answers you seek. Your avatar pic is cool, I watched an episode of miami ink the other day where Chris did that as a tatoo on someone. If there is anything specific you would like to know I am sure someone will help you out.

if your planning on breeding if i were you i would splash some money and buy a cheap morph like a pastel or if you have the money a morph of your choice, and try and produce some morphs and sell them off to make a profit.

im sure you already aware of this but i will say it anyway, you have to make sure that the Female ball python should weigh at least 500 grams for every foot they measure in length, i.e., if the female is 4 feet long, she should weigh at least 2000 grams before she is bred. Males should weigh a minimum of 500 grams, but 800 is a healthier place to start.

and make sure you do as much research as possable, if you choose to breed, good luck!

Hi Lekkie, I'm on the same boat, I want to get my boas to breed, which I was hoping to do this year, but now I think they are still not ready for it.

Trouble with most things about snakes, is that you find 100 care sheet web sites talking about breeding, all of them sound convincing, but when you start comparing you notice a lot of discrepancies between them.

I suggest you read a few and compare them to get started and if you're in doubt, come here and ask specific questions, and surely someone will be able to help.

That's an example of a link that can be usefull, but I'd not garantee it's 100 % right because I've never bred royals myself.
