Call The australia Zoo in Beerwah.
Ask to speak to .....
Deon, Diane,Mick , Rob, Jeremy,Matt, Dave or Bruce
Mick and I think Dave both are into snakes quite a bit and I think
Mick is now working with Venomous ones.
They are all reptile staff and any of them may know of a python breeder that is reputable.
THey will also know of Python Rescue Programs that may already have Pythons needin homes!
Good Luck Mate!

I have a ball python and its very docile, sometime to much but a good started snake . What ever one you get there are some things to remember. Clean the cage often , snake poop and urine has a very heavy smell of ammonia. Use paper towels to line the cage floor and not wood chips because when you feed them that can eat the chips with there food . Feed them frozen lab raised mice ( thaw them in a glass of hot water ) live mice can make the snake aggressive and handle them often helps them stay used to being handled. NO HOT ROCKS, they can burn the snake. Use a reptile heating pad and glass tank. Large water bowl to keep humidity high to aid in shedding. some one mention shedding problems. a warm water soak will aid in shedding try covering the top of the cage with a wet towel to trap moisture but leave a corner open for some air this will greatly aid in the shedding. I feel that you should not peel your snakes skin, if it does not come off on its own its not ready to do so. they should shed all at one time and if not increase the moisture
