Feed in the morning or in the evening. Ball Pythons will eat mice and rats in captivity, although they would not in the wild. In the wild they prefer birds, other snakes, frogs and lizards. They are constrictors; which means they constrict their prey to suffocate it and then eat it. If you have trouble feeding your ball python, please refer to our “Snake Feeding” fact sheet for help. A healthy snake will usually eat about every 7-10 days. An adult will eat from 3 adult mice to two medium rats at each feeding, depending on the size of the snake. Remember that it is always easier for a reptile to digest several smaller prey items rather that one large one. Defecation usually follows 2-3 days after eating. Do not feed again until snake has defecated from previous feeding. Some snake owners find it easier to feed their pet in a separate enclosure, free of bedding and furniture. This way you can be sure your snake eats all its food properly and the snake will not pick up any bedding when grabbing prey and mistakenly ingest it along with the prey.
Diet in the wild: Gerbils, rats, mice and other small rodents.
