Ball Python

 Python regius

African Rock Python

..

About this snake:

The Ball Python gets its name from its primary method of defense. When disturbed, the ball python will wrap itself up into a ball, protecting its head by hiding it in the middle of its coils. Some predators, like cats, are discouraged by the snake's lack of movement and lose interest. Reptile predators are discouraged because the large, round "ball" shape makes the python harder to swallow. The Ball Python is one of Africa's smallest pythons, reaching "only" two meters (six and a half feet) in length.
