Christian instantly buys a male ball python, he builds a _ following his friend’s advices, for an approximate expense of 350 €.
After a few months, he decides to buy a female one too, in order to couple them.
Since that moment his real path begins, young man’s who’s intent upon breeding reptiles, having already had a first mating and first births of ball python.
At that point, he decides to breed only ball pythons and not boas, he proceeds to get in touch with other Italian breeders, who reproduce ball python morphs.
