It is a question that has been rolling around my mind for a little while now. I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced anything like a bond with their ball python? A couple of months ago Damons heat pad shorted out and burnt his belly very badly. I handled him multiple times daily to put cream on his belly, he even got to the point where he would stay on his back with no problems for me to apply the cream. Ever since he healed he has been eager to be held and crawls back up my arm when I go to put him away.
