I don’t know how to trane a python, in fact I don’t know what that is, but if you wanted to train your python.. well then you can’t. Its a reptile. Ball pythons are actually known to be one of the most aggressive species of all pythons. They have even been known to escape their cages just to find and attack their owners... good luck though!

wow, first off ball pythons are not aggressive at all!! the most important part is selectin the right one. MAKE SURE YOU GET CAPTIVE BREED!!! there is no substitution for CB ball pythons. BP’s are some of the easiest snakes to maintain. and some of the easiest to meet the needs for. out of all of the constrictors boas/pythons. balls are the easiest to maintain, keep and tame.
The important part is that once you get one, Do not hold it until it is an established eater. (3-5 regular feeds) and also ensure that you have a good hide for it. Ball pythons can easily be stressed from a relocation (i.e. from the pet shop to the house). once it is an established feeder start holding but no more once or twice a week for about an hour. (also hold it no less than once every two weeks). He will be used to being handled, Only once have I ever been bitten by a ball python and it was when I was young and dumb and made a mistake while cleaning the cage.
I maintain a collection of 12 snakes, 6 of which are varying morphs of BPs. and I am looking at getting 2 more at the end of the year. Anyone who tells you that BP are aggressive, much less the most aggressive pythons are obviously inexperienced keepers, or not keepers at all.

I saw the sarcasm and thought it was hilarious. People on this forum are too serious. One of the worst things about this place.
