In Reply to: I agree with Oldherper 100%, good advice. N/P posted by hotshot on May 12, 2003 at 17:07:48:

Those things are notorious for overheating and can burn the snake very badly. May want to switch over to an under tank heat pad. I use the human heat pads bought at walmart. They are inexpensive and have a built in setting switch! Might want to make sure you have a temp gauge inside the cage to help you keep an eye on the temps of the enclosure.
Welcome to the ranks of snake owners!!
Good luck and happy herping

::If the snake is doing well and thriving with the current owner, I would try to as closely as possible approximate the conditions he's living in now...temperature wise, humidity, cage furnishings, cage size, etc. The only thing I would look to change in the near future is to try to get him switched to frozen/thawed mice.

:::I am getting a 7 year old Ball Python from a relative. He has owned it for 7 years and is the only owner. He seems to be very docile and friendly. He eats live mice with no problem. He has also had a heat rock for his heat since he was a hatchling. I know very little about snakes but I have always wanted one, and am very excited about this one. I am looking for any tips tricks advise and what to expect from this snake when I move him...

:::Please Help
