    My first ball python!

    Hello all. After years of keeping leopard geckos & bearded dragons I am awaiting the arrival of my first snake. Specifically a male banana / cinnamon. Let me know what you think of him & his future home. Hopefully it warms up soon so he can be shipped safely. I will be adding a CHE to help maintain the temp. The UTH isn't keeping up. .

    Congrats. You might want to work on your set up a bit as I'm sure others will chime in. Smaller hides, paper or covering around 3 sides. Dual thermometers for both your hot and warm sides. How is it heated? Humidity level? Maybe even a smaller set up for the first 6 months or so. BTW, how old is your snake?

    Oh, and welcome!

    I actually just asked for his exact age & weight this morning but haven't heard back yet. I believe he's 4-6 months. There are currently 2 thermometers & I have since covered the 3 sides. Humidity is between 50-60. It looks big in the photo but it's only a 20 long. There's a UTH but I'll be adding a CHE on a thermostat.

    Hereís the revised setup. My second thermostat will be here tomorrow. Temps are looking good. Humidity is low when the humidifier isnít running but perfect when it is. 3 more days & heíll finally be here!
