The ball python (Python regius) is a python species found in sub-Saharan Africa. Like all other pythons, it is a non-venomous constrictor. This is the smallest of the African pythons and is popular in the pet trade, largely due to its typically docile temperament. No subspecies are currently recognized. It is also known as royal python. The name “ball python” refers to the animal’s tendency to curl into a ball when stressed or frightened. The name royal python (from the Latinregius) comes from the fact that rulers in Africa would wear the python as jewelry. source
