After reading everyone' s thoughts I agree with every point made. I strongly believe it can be a combination of all or certain points that are consider higher on the ladder to why.

1. Numbers of imports - greater for ball pythons more imports.
2. Very small difference in each (name it a new morph) - greater for ball pythons just about a new morph each month - lol.
3. Size and care of (boas are just bigger and need more room and food so - greater for ball python who can be cared for in smaller cages and fed smaller sized meals and pose less risk to people around them.
4. Legality - ball pythons have less trouble and hassle legally to own.
5. Breeding - ball male breed more females as mentioned before and both male and females can br bred younger as long as weight and size have been reached compared to boas who I believe mature slower.

So I think its a combination of all this. Thank god balls don' t have boa size litters

Don' t get me wrong I love ball pythons and there rainbows of colors but I' m a large constrictor fan #1 and always.
