    Just picked up a new Setup for my Diamond Python, let me know what you think.
    The dimensions are
    1850 High
    1650 Long
    650 Deep

    There's a pipe leading from the main tank to a separate breeding tank below. Im still working out the heating and a few other things but hopefully will get her in there by christmas.

    I had a similar type of setup for my python and I didn't bother heating the lower part as the snake had access to both sections. You will be surprised at how much you snake will use the lower part though there is no heating. Nice set up by the way...

    I'll let you know what I think.

    I think you have a pretty snappy display there!

    Enjoy your Xmas!

    Where did you get the enclosure set up from (including the tree)?

    Yeah I'm also only going to heat the top section, thinking about getting a male diamond down the track and using the bottom section as a breeding tank, but for now I'll leave it open for her to explore.

    and thanks :)

    :) took me ages to find it, it needed a lot of cleaning to get it to what it looks like now.

    have a great Christmas

    Hey, I got the enclosure from a bloke up near Lake Macquarie, he didn't want it anymore, he gave me everything he had for it including the tree :)

    merry Christmas

    It looks great! That diamond is a lucky girl, I love it when people get Christmas presents for their snakes. We did the same for our BHP girl, and built her a big enclosure for Christmas. Might build the boy one for new years :D
