    Well i want to start getting more pythons (and start breeding).
    I Just want a (solid) list of things i need, just to lay it all out and know the exacts.
    My Jungle, Monty, his enclosure is a glass one so i dont have experiences in building them.. (my friend offered to help build a special new one just for him though as she can get wood for free ;D)
    I know Melamine is the most preferred wood and such..
    Just want specifics if you know what i mean.

    Yeah, same thing for incubators. Im a little strapped on cash (cheap DIYs that people are successful with) and best bedding etc
    Eventually ill move on up to the fridge method, when i need the space.

    Dont wanna come off all noobie, I only have the one python and i feel so bad being sucked into a pet shops crap with his enclosure, it hardly holds in heat at all! Thank god for techie friends.

    I just want to make sure that all my pythons get the best care they need when i get more in the future.

    Thanks for the help guys!

    These links should provide details for you, the first by Darren Whittaker is great as a basic, easy to build and simple enclosure which are also good for stacking multiple together to save space. The incubator thread is one which I asked out of curiosity earlier and there are some good tips in there also.
