This Blue Ball Python figure is handmade out of polymer clay. It is coated with high quality glaze to protect it from some harm. This figure is a fun addition to any terrarium or fairy garden and is a great gift to any reptile lover. The figure you receive may look slightly different than the ones pictured as it is made to order. Please allow 5-7 days creation time before shipment. I ship via the United States Postal Service (USPS), First Class shipping. My shipping materials are mostly recycled. Thanks for looking!
