- The ball python is also called the royal python
- It's called a 'ball' python because it often curls up into a tight ball, especially when afraid.
- The longest-living ball python on record was over 48 years old when it died!
- Ball pythons are excellent swimmers and pump themselves full of air to stay buoyant. To dive they let out some of this air!
