Don't worry, these little guys (ball pythons) aren't threatening at all!

Really shy, honestly.

Most snakes are shy!
You'd be astonished at how terribly the media tends to portray them xD

Ball pythons in particular, however, are notoriously shy.
They call them ball pythons because when threatened, they curl up in a ball with their head in the middle of their coils.
It keeps a very vulnerable part of their body sage from attacks, see.

I can't tell you how many times I've accidentally bopped him right in the nose, and he just jerks away, rather than hiss or strike.

He hasn't chased me, but when handling him (or y'know, just sitting around browsing Tumblr while he's on my lap) he does tend to stick close.
Likely for warmth reasons, but still :XD:

You should look into it! But please, please do lots of research first. Snakes makes fantastic, low-maintenance pets, but they do take some careful attention.

But if you are serious, I'd recommend looking up corn snakes and ball pythons.

I'd suggest looking into corn snakes more - ball pythons and corn snakes are at the SAME LEVEL, except for one little thing

Ball pythons teeend to be picky eaters, and fast whenever they please, for no discernible reason. It's nothing to worry about, but it can get stressful.

My little guy hasn't eaten in three weeks :/
Ball pythons can go for two months without eating before it gets to be anything to worry about, but y'know. Still. It chips away at your psyche. Eat, you little bastard! :XD:;

I dunno. I just love animals, I guess ^^;

Tell me about it, though! My parents are both from the Caribbean - asking for a snake was like completely seriously asking to keep a tiger in the house.
Took me two years to open them up to the idea.

Oh, one more thing

A video from the day I got him.
He was probably just too tired to really resist (since now when I touch his head, sometimes he puts up with it, but most of the time he'll just move away) but he really is very calm - as are most ball pythons.

Absolutely! Persistence and dedication v . v

The first time I brought up the fact that I wanted a snake, both of my parents literally stopped what they were doing and looked at me with a 'what kind of crack or you on' look, and Dad was like
"You want a what"

Whenever I brought it up latr on, Mum would just shudder and say she didn't want to discuss it.

So then, over the months, I'd just bring snake facts up every now and then.
"Did you know ball pythons only get between 2-4 feet long?"
"Did you know that snakes are incredibly low-maintenance? Babies eat once a week or so. Adults eat monce a month. And because they only 'go' as often as they eat, you only need to spot-clean their enclosure that many times!"
"There are plenty of lock-and-key enclosures available. A snake could stay in one room of the house and you'd never have to see it, if you didn't want to."

Etc etc.

Progress was slow but steady.

Funny thing is, it wasn't my facts that really opened up my Dad to the idea - by pure luck, he'd been watching some sort of documentary (I forget what about), and somewhere in it, he heard a guy was breeding Burmese Pythons as a sort of side-business.
He mentioned one of his snakes going for $7500, and my Dad (being a very business-oriented person) was astonished, and came to me and asked if this was true, or if he was just exaggerating.

And I was like
LOL DAD
I'VE SEEN BABY BALL PYTHONS FOR $65,000

So we got talking, and now that he was suddenly so open to learn about the subject, he was surprisingly quick to come aboard.
