Water for your new baby ball python for sale

Some companies sell products such as “water conditioner” to put in your snakes water dish. Its purpose is to remove chlorine, provide ions and electrolytes to hydrate animals and detoxify ammonia and nitrites.  Using a conditioner is more important for a baby ball python over adults.

Water should be offered in a shallow water dish. It should not be too deep to drown your snake. The size of the water dish is up to you. If you chose to make it large enough for your snake to be able to rest in it, you will soon see your snake take advantage of that. Ball pythons will often be seen soaking in their water to retain moisture and keep hydrated.

Change your ball pythons water often

Like many animals, snakes will defecate in their water bowls from time to time. Be prepared to disinfect it often. We recommend about every week you should take the bowl out of the enclosure and thoroughly clean it out. Be sure not to use any harsh or dangerous chemicals.

A spare water bowl can come in handy for when you are cleaning the original one. Looking for something smaller? check out our corn snake for sale section!
