I can't give you the link to a site, but I can tell you that if you go to a pet store where they have ball pythons and ask what you need, the store owner will be able to tell you. It can be quite expensive. You will need an aquarium of course, a top or lid that is breathable, a light to keep the snake warm, a thermometer to stick in the cage to make sure he is at the proper temp, a water bowl, and some accessories so your snake has something to do. Also you will need some type of bedding for the bottom. All of this costs about 250 bucks (not including the snake). But keep in mind, as the snake grows, you may need a larger aquarium for him if you originally bought a smaller one. You may also need mite spray. Do not use tree limbs that you find outside for the inside of your snakes cage, they may have mites on them, and once your snake has them they are hard to get rid of and can even kill your snake! I had a ball python die because I couldn't control the mites I had so stupidly exposed him to for not researching better. A simple google search for "ball pythons as pets" will give you tons of information. Good luck
