    Husbandry mistake #1, and perhaps the worst possible mistake you can do with a ball python.

    Yup, as the others said, unplug the UTH.

    Google snake burns if you need to, but you should just trust us.

    I am no vet, but I would think that over heating could possibly be the cause of the vomiting.

    Oh dear, what happens?

    What should I do for heat in the meantime? I don't know if the lamp alone will suffice.

    Every heat source should be regulated, not optional. Unplug your UTH until you can get a dimmer or thermostat.

    You can grab a thermostat at the closest pet store... then I recommend buying a nicer one, and a infrared temp gun for the near future.

    Oh, just saw the second page of replies. Definitely will be getting a thermostat setup asap.

    Technically, both the UTH AND the ambient heat source(lamp in your case) should BOTH be on thermostats, either two separate thermostats or a dual controlled thermostat like a herpstat2 for example.
