I know this might seem trivial, but is there a possibility of adding an “Eye Color” and “Neurological” drop down to the Ball Python section?
I know many “newbies” (myself included) that aren’t too comfortable with not being able to see the irises of owned, and potential purchases. Their eye color is a top deterrent for myself, and many others. I know it probably sounds rather dumb to the “seasoned” owners/breeders/handlers, but when you’re trying to get over your irrational fears of snakes, being able to know where they are looking plays a major part in your “security”.
I’ve been doing a lot of research on morphs, and I know that there are a lot of people who have issues with the “spider” gene, among others that have potential neurological issues. I personally believe in researching the breeder, speaking to them, and seeing video of any BP’s I’m interested in with any of these known morphs. Now, I’d like to think that all of the sellers on here are honest, and take the best care of their animals as possible, but there are always a few bad eggs. It would be nice to have a drop down where if “noticed”, they would be honest enough to disclose any wobble/feeding/righting issues, etc.
Just a thought, but I have personally just been excluding specific morphs from my searches because contacting countless breeders with the same questions has gotten too time consuming and unrealistic.
Thank you to all those who truly want to educate the uneducated like myself. Working and speaking with BP lovers like yourselves, has helped my confidence, knowledge, and understanding tremendously!
