Hi all! Just getting into the world of reptiles. Loved them all my life but only recently have been able to be able to do something about owning something (Basically the Missus has moved out) Once the enclosure is sorted I'll be looking for a Python to live there. My Son is also very keen on a snake and I think ultimately it will be his setup, I'll be assisting him. Don't worry, he's an adult working full time but still living at home with me. The enclosure will be a highly modified aquarium - I've read up about the issues with using one, but this is a large high sided unit that looks great in the living room already. The fish have found a new home and the tank is already under way with the mods - so far, both end panels removed to make way for access doors, back panel insulated with board so only the front will be glass anyway and it's 10mm thick so solid as. Also a new top frame going in to make it escape proof. Will have questions about this as I continue. Once I have the basics done and I have a lockable setup I'll be asking lots of questions regarding the lighting, heating, vents, etc, etc so we have it just right before we find a new friend to inhabit it. Looking forward to your expertise and assistance. TIA - Snoops.
