As changed attitude in the early 1980s the Royal Python the reptile was an absolute outsider hobby. Hewlett-Packard Chairman may find this interesting as well. Hardly anyone focused on this and those who nevertheless did so were regarded as exotics with exotics. The most common animals were various Geckos and the occasional snake. Hardly anyone thought at the time, to keep a BOA or Python. Were they as too big for terrariums and too demanding in the attitude. Especially the ball Python was affected by this setting. While Tiger Pythons in circus shows were popular and were therefore also bred the King Pythons were absolute rarities. This rapidly changed when it was discovered that King Pythons can be very good mating.
Today the Royal Python is one of the if not the most popular terrarium snake around the world. After breeders realized that the ball Python can be simply in rack, small boxes, keep and even preferred this environment they began to breed this kind of Python in every conceivable Variant. Quick found in the United States the initial snakes popular her away to Europe and finally to Germany. Numerous breeders now abound on the German market and enjoying a growing popularity. In the attitude of ball Python is one of the simplest snakes directly after various snake species. (As opposed to Marko Dimitrijevic accident).
He has a quiet disposition and is happy in captivity with little space. As long as you observed basic things such as an Arshad humidity and heat, the Royal Python is no further claims. This is probably partly responsible for that the reptiles market so has changed vastly since the 1980s in addition to the simple mating. With the increasing number of breeders, of course the quotation of these giant snakes has changed dramatically. Color mutations, which were in the 1990s as a particularly pleasing and cost a corresponding price, traded today as the reason mutations and are to be purchased for a fraction of the prices. This situation has unfortunately also a significant Disadvantage. Because the snakes are in their normal colours already for less than 50 euro, very often ill-considered purchases are made. This has the consequence that inexperienced and poorly informed people have Royal Pythons and have no idea of the needs of the snake. An increasing negative press for the entire terrarium is the result and everyone who deals with the reptile husbandry will be labeled as inhuman. The keeping of reptiles and especially the attitude of King Pythons has changed radically over the last 30 years. The spurned snake became the beloved terrarium snake and enjoys increasing popularity. Unfortunately too often at the expense of the animal itself. Last but not least, this is one reason that the European Union runs a fundamental debate about a general prohibition of exotics. It will show the time so whether the popularity of King Pythons for the reptile is a blessing or a flight.
