    Ball pythons don’t eat crickets and don’t grow to be “8 or 9 feet long”.

    This is really a badly written article replete with errors. It is usually a bad idea to take advice about animals from someone in the business of selling them to you. For example, water turtles are terrible pets for most people, and a 55 gallon tank is not appropriate for a slider turtle.
    Still, it is pretty ironic that the pet shop will “do their part in educating a keen buyer” when they obviously did a poor job educating this reporter!
    Match this article with another recent one: Most pet lizards die within a year, Three in four
    reptiles perish because they cannot escape pain and hunger in a captive
    environment (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-5022473/Reptiles-not-kept-pets-expert-warns.html#ixzz4xUpvk4Vi)
