Do Ball Pythons have to mate to lay eggs?

I think my sons Python just laid eggs but it hasn’t been in contact with any other snakes; is this possible? Also, are Python egg sacks white?

    Ball Pythons take five or six months to lay eggs after mating. Could the snake have been exposed to another snake in January or February?

    At times female egg-laying snakes will lay an unfertilized egg. It will like be small and wrinkled, overall looking bad. The snakes does not have to have mated or even be near a male for this to happen. Ball pythons are one species with which I have witnessed with event.
