Ambassador since 2016
- Paul was removed from an area apartment building in 2016. He was to stay at Hickory Knolls only until a new owner could be found. But his calm nature and ease of handling quickly made him a staff favorite, so here he stayed.
- Paul is blind in one eye. We don’t know his history so can’t say for sure what happened, but suspect he retained the eye cap on that eye over successive sheds sometime in his past.
- We also don’t know for sure how old Paul is but, based on information from his finder, estimate him to be in his early 20s.
- Ball pythons are native to West and Central Africa, where they live in grasslands, shrublands and open woodlands.
