A quick introduction
Hey guys, Having just signed up after a long time of reading through here, i thought i should post a quick intro.
My name is David, I'm 18 and from Brisbane. After some encounters with snakes (one in particular http://www.aussiepythons.com/forum/m...-started-5615/) i decided i would very much love to have one of my own. As such i am currently awaiting my license and will soon get a hold of either a Murray Darling or just a Childrens python (depending on what my enclosure can hold). I am very much a novice, and this would be my first snake. Thanks in advance for any advice i may receive from you guys! While im here, Any one know of any good MD breeders in Brisbane? (more specifically eastern brisbane)

Welcome to the family , I know of someone with caramel coastals and lots of them near beenleigh-(go getting two on the weekend) not md breeders though sorrygrow a pair

How big do coastals grow? I have an enclosure thats 900 long by 600 tall and 400 deep (mm). Im worried it might be way too small for an md and those coastals look gorgeous.

Yeah there hot, there useually up to 8 or so foot grown, that would be good for a few years, as hatchiep they only need a 30-50 l clickclack for a while, I have them set up in 4foot tanks so when they look big enough there gonna be easiest to settle into their new bigger home I can pm you details ifyou wantgrow a pair

Ah a bit large for my first snake, (just a preference although i'd love to get into larger snakes as i become more experienced) Do you think it would house an md comfortably though?
im getting conflicted messages here haha jonez said 4m?

I thought max for a murray darling is 2-2.5m? (Im probably wrong im still learning)

Yeah ill definitely upgrade to a larger one once it grows big enough. This may be the wrong thread to ask, but im yet to install a heat lamp in the enclosure because im unsure as to what wattage bulb i should be using for an enclosure that size? i have a 60W bulb ready but want to be sure.

Is it going to be in a cage so it doesn't burn itself on it, other wise put a heat cord under a ceramics tilegrow a pair

yeah there will be a cage. I was thinking of using a heat mat as well, or is that overkill? regardless ill need one when its in its click clack.
