I keep an Excel spreadsheet with charts on each animal which I regularly print out to keep a hard copy in case of data loss. The copies go into a binder with blue tabs for the females and white for the males.

I track feeding, what they ate, when they defecate (short tails only), in shed, the day they shed, copulation, weights on a somewhat regular basis and when they refuse to feed. I feel like I'm forgetting something too.

All of them gets an ID number, twelve characters in four groups of three which denotes the collection number, species, when I got it, if it was born here or acquired, and male or female.

Similar to Jerry I keep detailed spreadsheets on all of my Pythons. Data logged includes feeding dates, what type of feeder that was offered, the weight of the feeder and whether the animal in question strike fed, drop fed or refused the meal. Defecation: date and whether it was urates or faeces. Weight: recorded after ecdysis. Length: taken periodically. Shedding: date and whether the shed was perfect or if assistance was required. I even record dates that I handle any of my Pythons, if an aggressive response to handling is displayed then it also gets noted. I don't keep paper copies of these spreadsheets but they are backed up onto my external hard drive and also copied to my work computer periodically.
Yeah, I love data and I am offically sad!!
