    Hi guys,
    I am getting a childrens python for myself for my first reptile, I am experienced at keeping a range of animals and I am a snake lover but I've never kept a reptile before and I want to do it right.
    So with that in mind I just want some general advice on getting started.
    Mainly what is the best type of enclosure and setup to start with? I understand that my setup may change depending on the individual snakes needs but I just would like a starting point.
    Any information you could give this noob would be awesome hehe
    THANKS : )

    The book "The Complete Childrens Python" is also a great book with very in depth information on the Childrens Python complex.
