I thought it was because they were too small so I bought her the largest exo terra tortoise cave as she's growing so fast. But she's not interested in it at all.

    Is this normal at 8 months old/ 4 feet long? Thanks.

    Thanks, I couldn't decide between Hypo or Albino so I got a Hypo Albino (Pearl) There were also Blizzards available from her clutch (Super Hypo Albino) but they were a bit out of my price range.

    Thanks man. It's a 4 x 2 Vivexotic vivarium, with White Python 150 watt CHE and LEDs both controlled by a Microclimate Evo thermostat on a day night cycle.

    I'm looking forward to building her a custom adult setup. This is my only snake so I can go all out with a slightly heated drainable pool and large branches for climbing

    On a side note, I like this Eco Earth a lot but it sticks to her mouth from tongue flicking. Its not inside as I've seen her yawning but do you guys experience substrate on their mouth too?

    Awesome pictures man, well done, I really like your set up, it looks great. I like the colors and use the same tortoise shell for my Carpet Python who's about 6.6 Feet and I'm going to start covering it the way you have it.

    In regards to Eco Earth, I've never had a snake that would get it in their mouth due to tongue flicking so I can't comment on that but my snakes definitely get some in their mouths if they attack a prey pretty hard and roll around. From my knowledge on reptiles though, not just snakes, a little Eco Earth can't harm them if digested, they get a lot more Nature in their mouths in the wild and their stomachs are incredible. The only concern I've read from others on here is if a bigger piece gets stuck somewhere at the beginning of their mouths, but I go through all my substrate to make sure no bigger pieces are present.

    Owning 1 snake is great cause you can just focus all your attention and money lol on just the one.

    Keep us updated though, would love to see her as she grows and if you build a bigger tank.

    Good luck to you and her

    Thanks mate. The tortoise cave has only been in there for two days but so far she just seems to prefer climbing over the top of it ha ha.

    Re: At what size does a Burm normally stop using hides?

    My Normal never used one and my Albino stopped after about 4/5 feet.. They were not the PVC hides of today so idk if that mattered back then or not. Mine always just coiled in the back right hand side basking area. Ive never had plants, decor or clutter for my Burms and never a nervous bone in their body
    Glad she is doing so well
