    It works down South too as it makes it a lot easier to maintain that ESSENTIAL gradient that is forgotten by so many people.

    If it's hot enough to melt the plastic tub then it will certainly kill your snake.

    I assume that the dowl is a climbing gym for the hatchy?

    Is the height important?

    Definately good tutorial.

    I just set mine up last night as I just received my first snake but I definately don't have enough holes in it.

    I only have 6 holes at the top the size of a pencil...

    soldering iron

    Do you push through and make the holes inside to outside or from the outside in?

    I usually do the holes from the outside in. That way, when the soldering iron goes through, you pull it back out and it pulls back through any melted plastic.. It makes it a bit neater and minimises there being sharp edges on the inside of the click-clack.
