I have been keeping and breeding various species of snakes since 1989. After working with Colubrids for nearly 20 years exclusively my son got a Ball Python for his 7th birthday and since then we have been hooked. We started building our breeding collection in 2016 very selectively with each animal chosen for specific attributes and very high quality. We may not always be the cheapest seller but when you buy from us you get service, assistance and help with anything you need after the sale! There are a lot of options to buy your next animal but if you decide to buy from us know you will be getting an extremely well cared for animal, very high quality expressions of genetics and excellent service after the sale.

Store Policy
***Shipping Update: We will cut off shipping from the week of Thanksgiving through the week of New Years Day due to holiday shipping volume and inherent delays. You can still purchase during this time but no exceptions will be made to this shipping policy. We will continue to like always care for your snake like it is our own during this timeframe until safe shipping can resume after the holidays***

*If you see it on Morph Market and its not marked on hold then it is available we update the moment payment is made*

Contact is best through Morph Market, texting 865-368-2666 or our website www.bcsballs.com. Serious inquiries only please.

Payment Methods: For payment in full we will direct you to our website, www.bcsballs.com for secure checkout through our site. Payment plans (details below) will be worked out on an individual basis and will be done through Paypal or Zelle. The only other payment options at this time are cash, USPS Money Orders or Bank Issued Cashiers Checks with 10 business day hold from the date received.

Due to major Fed Ex delays on Monday’s right now we are temporarily only shipping on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Hub delivery is preferred but home delivery is available if a Hub is not within a reasonable distance (within 35-40 miles). Until Fed Ex starts guaranteeing delivery times and insuring shipments hub pickup will be the only shipping method in most instances.

Live arrival guaranteed as long as picked up within 4 hours of becoming available for pickup for Hub delivery.

DOA claims must be made with pictures of the animal within 1 hour of the FedEx timestamp noting delivery of the package for home delivery or within 2 hours of the Fed Ex timestamp noting pickup for Hub deliveries. DOA's are extremely rare and we take every available precaution to deliver you a healthy well packaged animal!

Sex, 100% Hets and health at arrival are always guaranteed and all animals come with a Genetics Certificate and Data Sheet. Due to the growing number of genes being proven and worked with we can no longer 100% guarantee the non recessive genetics in our animals. When we have an animal in question we ask numerous breeders in our network to help ID them and make every effort to identify exactly what is in each animal, but some genes are hidden or are expressed very differently in some combinations so we can no longer be 100% sure anymore at times. We often check with top breeders we network with and at times they cannot even agree on positive IDs on some animals. The same is true for every breeder working with a lot of multi-gene animals and theoretical ID is becoming the norm. We do however label any gene as "possible" if we aren't almost certain it is there and would never intentionally sell something with an incorrect genetic ID.

We cannot provide any guarantees other than those stated above because we cannot always know the conditions the animal is coming into. We reserve the right to refuse sale to anyone we do not think will provide proper care or we believe to be buying for resale.

Shipping in the continental US is $60 flat rate through Reptiles Express for all animals under 1000g and $75 for animals or combined animal shipments over 1000g. Shipping is free on any animal or combined orders of $1000 or greater regardless of weight!

Local pickup available by meetup appointment in Knoxville Tennessee as well!

Shipping is weather dependent and may vary on holidays and other special circumstances. We only ship for home delivery when temps are no higher than 90 and no lower than 40 degrees here, at the connecting hub as well as the destination Hub but there is some significant wiggle room with hub pickups.

Payment plans available on purchases $500 or greater require a 25% non-refundable deposit with the balance due no more than 30 days after initial payment. For amounts $1000 and up the balance is due no more than 60 days after initial payment. Arrangements can be made for one payment plan extension of 30 days with an added fee of 10% of the original total sales price including shipping. Any balances not paid in full by the deadline or that do not arrange an extension of their payment plan in advance of the deadline will forfeit all monies paid.

We do not vend or take our animals to shows or expos and sell online only. We also maintain a closed collection; hardly anyone outside my immediate family has been in our room so you can know when you buy from us you are getting a healthy animal that is well started and ready for a new home!
