Common Name: Royal Python / Ball Python – Pastel
Species: Python regius
Rehoming Fee: £50
Details: This adult male pastel royal python lived in a tiny glass exo terra on it’s side. His bedding was a mix of dried faeces and old shed. He was underweight, dehydrated and lethargic. In his time with us he has bounced back amazingly. He has eaten every week, enjoys his 4x2x2 enclosure with us, explores and has put a great amount of weight on. He is handleable but can be a bit food orientated, so we would not recommend children get him out of the enclosure but an adult reaches in for him. This is purely because he has not been fed properly during his life and feels insecure about where his next meal will come from. As soon as he realizes you are not food, he is fine. This will most likely stop happening as he learns that he is safe and secure and that food will be provided every week.
How to rehome an animal: Rehomes or rescues are animals that were surrendered to us either by the owner, by the RSPCA, local council, police, or escaped reptiles found living wild. Sometimes we have history on these animals but very frequently we do not know anything about their age or health other than what we can visually tell. Sometimes these animals are in poor health condition and may need many months or rehabilitation with us, whilst others are healthy and can go straight to a new home after a period of quarantine. Regardless of the species or the history of the animal, rehomes have a £50 rehoming fee. Reptile Cymru is not a charity, we do not receive any funding or any other donations to help with the veterinary fees, food, heating and enclosure costs etc.
Delivery: We offer free local delivery in Cardiff, Barry, Penarth and Dinas Powys. Delivery within 100 miles of the shop is available and we can give you a quote but need a postcode to do so. We can help you arrange UK wide delivery via licensed reptile courier and will hold an animal if paid for until a courier is available.
