The Ball Python (scientifically named Python Regius) is a species that originates from sub-Saharan Africa. The name is based upon the fact that the animal has a tendency to curl itself into a ball when under attack, stressed or frightened. The species is also commonly known as the Royal Python. The name Royal Python anecdotally comes from the fact that African royalty would wear Ball Pythons around their necks as a form of living jewelry. Like other pythons, the Ball Python is a non-venomous constrictor. Ball Pythons are common house hold pets due to their relatively small size, docile temperament and the fact that they are non-venomous. Ball Pythons are large bodied snakes. They come in a wide variety of colours and morphs (genetic mutations). However, the snakes colorings tend to be more earthy: browns, beiges, or black with gold and white markings. The snakes bellies are usually white or cream and may contain black markings. The snakes body is normally stocky with the head being relatively small in comparison. The scales of the Ball Python are smooth. This book was previously published under the same name by 'Pet Care Professionals.'

The dictionary is a compilation of clear, concise and informative definitions of the characteristic vocabulary commonly encountered and used by herpetologists when discussing, reading, or writing about reptiles and amphibians. It is intended for all those who have an interest in these animals, from the amateur hobbyist who may find himself faced with what can be a rather intimidating scientific term or technical expression, to the trained zoologist who may sometimes have doubts over the exact meaning of a particular term. It will, it is hoped, not only be a useful source of reference to all who are either actively or passively involved in some aspects of herpetology whether they be keepers, curators, breeders, researchers, teachers or students, but an interesting read as well.
