im a newbie and Im sure I will have a ton of questions that people on here can hopefully answer.
I just bought an enclosure that is 1500x460x650 that I want to get a pair of Jungle carpets for...eventually, when my set-up is complete...
what age are pythons able to reproduce?
and for the branches that are secured in my enclosure, what product do you use to clean the surfaces? General household cleaning products would be a no-no Im assuming?
and also, Heating and Lighting...I have been doing heaps of research and its doing my head in!!! My enclosure has 2 fittings and I gather that the middle one is used for a light (what sort of light?) that should come on at night and the fitting on the left side should be the heat source controlled by a thermostat...but what exactly is the heat source? I have seen ceramic things that dont put out actual light and then there are heat lamps, and its confusing me a bit...and what sort of wattage is needed?
I know I will have loads more questions, but they are a good starting point...any tips/advice would be appreciated!
Just wondering what you think the most hygenic way to defrost and keep frozen rodents is.
I normally use double snap lock bagsDefrost them as you need them in either warm water or on a warm surface, try not to leave them for too long once defrosted, once defrosted do not refreeze.
For keeping them in the freezer just keep them in pressed sealed bags, double bagged imo is better for rats and large mice as the claws tend to tear small holes in the bags.
hey people. im new at all this. need a bit of help. i recently my first python a week ago. its a jungle. ive tried feeding it 3 times. each time it takes the mouse, wraps it up, then holds and smells it for a bout half an hour. then it leaves it on the floor of the enclosure?? its still there in the morning too. is this due to it being in a new enclosure ?? the temps are at 28 during the day and 24 at night. any suggestions would be great. cheers
