It's just one of those cultural difference things. Americans tend to call them Balls and us Brits say Royal. A bit like how 'fanny' means different things in the US and UK... :oops:

americans call them ball pythons...obviously due to their tendancy to ball up...so why dont they call anacondas maneating lol or amazontree boas evil? lol....just american way of doing things i suppose...but why are they caled royal????:-|

Or BP (blood python) :lol2: I'm still laughing after reading your post!! I tend to use BP because I started off my snake-keeping life on Ballpython.net and just got used to calling them that. Like I tend to call my monitor a sav rather than a bosc ... but I'm weird anyway :crazy:
