If I were to cover or partially cover the top with plastic do you think that would help with maintaining heat/humidity? I plan on getting the cage set up long before I get the animal so I'll be able to experiment and see what works best for proper humidty levels. I'll keep you posted on how things go, just need to be patient and wait for it to warm up before getting another python... and another... and another... :)
:any of the heat panels you mentioned should work fine. As for the cage though, having the vent in the top isn't all that good. Chondros don't need extremely high humidity, but more than most herps. Your humidity should average around 70-80% relative. I doubt that cage would hold those numbers with a large screen in the top. Other than that, the cage will probably be a perfect size for any adult chondro. I would go a little longer on the length, but it will work. Good luck.
:P.S. don't plan on one chondro. You will want more. lol.
