    Hey my friend recently got a snake for free but isn't sure what type it is. He was told its a ball python but i honestly don't think it is one. Here are a few pics of the snake. What do u think the snake is?

    Your instinct was dead on, that is not a Ball python. To me it looks like a Cape York spotted python; hopefully someone here would be able to give a more definite answer though.

    Regardless, it's still a very nice looking snake!!

    It looks fine. Anteresia do not get quite as bulky as ball pythons do.

    It is hard to tell but it looks like the snake has some loose skin? If so then yes she is skinny and probably dehydrated. What type of setup is she in right now? ENclosure size, temps, humidity, substrate?

    Loose skin on snakes DOES NOT determine over all health/condition
    Several more variables apply,freaking people out
    deserves supportive explanations .
