The bottom line is that wc or NOT Ball Pythons are HARDIER AND TOUGHER than Boas when subjected to any kind of stress PERIOD. It matters NOT where the Balls came from. A wc boa is much less hardy than a wc Ball Python. The fact that Ball Pythons go for long periods of time without eating aplies both to cb and wc Ball Pythons. The uninformed used to other species that readily eat get alarmed if a Ball doesn't feed for several months when in fact it is normal behavior. How many times have I had a Ball Python almost the size to breed and then it goes off feed and I have to wait an extra year...That statement that the "new" Ball is somehow different simply is NOT true...
