    So we're in the process of setting up a click clack for Shanni to get her first Children's Python hatchy in the next few months . . . while shopping today I saw these little silicone pinch bowls at Big W. they were only $3 for a 4 pack so I'm hoping they'll work well as hides, they'll be easy to cut a little entrance in & the black ones will be nice & dark inside . . . so our question is will they be suitable or should be be looking for something heavier or larger, ta Terri & Shan

    You may find that they will push them around easily unless you anchor them somehow.

    We just hatched 10 children's pythons through maternal incubation. They are now 5 days old. Gorgeous .

    I found small plastic pot plant saucers are perfect for hatchlings, just cut a small hole in them and silicone a small piece of tile, slate or flat rock to the top, this adds weight and gives the little guys something to rub on to help them shed

    i tend to use some pvc pipes cut in half or an ag-line pipe cut in half :), you can also use them as moulds for concrete hide making :)

    haha, so as it turns out the hide I had ready for a hatchy is a bit small for a 12 month old . . . Noodle still liked it though :)
