So I am trying to decide between the ball python or a bearded dragon. I have done a fair amount of research on both as well as ordering a few books but I can still not decide. So ball pythons are so cool looking and low maintenance with food and such only needing to be fed once a week and eventually one large meal a month or two smaller meals a month spaced out. From what I've read that is what I have learned correct me if I'm wrong. This could make it easy as I am in college and going home for a week for thanksgiving I won't be stressing as much if the snake has already been fed for that amount of time. Disadvantages are that I have heard how balls tend not to be as active (i know they are nocturnal I am speaking active in general) as bearded dragons. I also hear bearded dragons are so much fun too not that bps aren't fun. I want a pet that will be fun to interact with and handle a fair amount ( keeping in mind they are reptiles). Balls seem rather less expensive versus bearded dragons. The downside of Bds to me is the constant feeding esp if I got a baby...and after considering I may get a juv/adult if I go that path. What do you experts recommend? Con/Pros for BD vs Ball Pythons? It seems as if it breaks down less unkeep less personality (BP) vs more personality but more unkeep (BDs). I'm no expert so fire away.
