Just Ordered First ATB

My first ATB should be showing up tomorrow from Orlando. I've ordered her from Chuck at Central Florida Reptile Breeders... I'll repost tomorrow my purchase experience... Very positive so far...

I've got a 10 Gal tank all setup and ready for the first few months. I'm running an average 74-76 @ night and 84-89 @ day on the tank test run. I have a natural hide which will also be used for shedding a rather large water bowl for humidity reasons and a bamboo running lower back left to upper top right corner of the cage. I've got half the top covered with glass to preserve humidity and a 60 watt spotlight supplying daytime. I'm planning to mist daily until I move her over to a larger cage where I'll rig a misting system. Using aspen bedding, probably switching to newsprint or paper towels after the next bedding change. The snake is captive born but not captive bred. It has eaten twice on day old pinkies, born in mid December '02.

Just wanted to double check with you tree boa pros to make sure I have all bases covered. This will be my first Boa - I've got experience with pythons and milks so any important 'personal experience' care differences would be wonderful to point out that might not have been in the care sheets.
