Thank you again for your comments Brandon,
Taking the time to establish a proper cage environment is very important to me and I'll wait as long as I need to in order to make sure that the cage is properly set up before bringing home a green tree python. I bought a gorgeous baby GTP at a reptile show a couple years ago and it was a disaster. The baby turned out to be a fresh import, heavy parasite loads etc.. Unfortunately s/he didn't make it:( I don't want to go through that again. I have been looking not just at various cages, but also at various breeders of quality captive bred, captive born animals. Rob Worrel and Ophiological Services are a couple that I'm really looking at for now. Several others would've been good but they ship with Delta Dash and where I live Delta isn't accepted, I'd have to drive to the next state over in order to receive a Delta shipment which just isn't practical. If I have to wait several months, so be it, it'll be worth the wait.
:Todd, a piece of plexi-glass should work fine to cover the top, but chondros also need good air circulation. It's kinda tricky to understand, but once you get the hang of it, it's no big deal. Moderate humidity with fresh air circulation. As long as you have plenty of time to establish your setup, you'll do fine. Good luck and keep us posted.
