Many common names change and several species have more than one (python regius: Royal python, ball python). I think stating the scientific name and possibly the more "correct" common name would be good. 'Royal python' is more correct than 'ball python' since the scientific name literally means royal python. Calling them ball pythons is a bit of a misnomer since Calabars can ball up tighter than anything else. It's late... does that make any sense? LOL
Just keep walking and ignore the monkeys...
