    Animal Plastics?

    Hey yíall. So Iíve had my first snake - a blotched kingsnake - for about a year now, and I want to get a second. Iíve had my eye on a ball python - just a regular female, cheap but beautiful - at my stateís monthly expo. Iím hoping to get one next month.

    But everything Iíve read online is making me concerned. My kingsnake is in a 55 gallon glass tank, and heís doing fine, but ball pythons need a lot more specialized care. Iím in Michigan, so when it gets cold, it gets cold, and I donít have a very high humidity. So, instead of another glass tank, Iím looking at a pvc.

    I donít have a lot of money, so Iíd probably get a T10 as theyíre on sale, but what extras would I want to get? Should I buy their heat tape, light bulbs, locks? With my kingsnake, my natural temperatures and such are pretty much perfect and I didnít have to mess around with much of anything, so Iíd like to get this right.

    Also, Iíve read that it can take a really long time for cages to arrive. How long should I expect?

    Narrowed questions: animal plastics or others? What extras to get from them or buy elsewhere? How to manage heat/humidity while also making it a display case? How long until the cage would get here? Any elseís experiences?

    Thanks in advance!

    I just got my T10 three months ago. They quoted me 10-12 weeks for arrival and they mailed it out on week 15.

    Other than that it was packed very well, easy to assemble (the instructions make it sound harder than it is), and holds temp and humidity awesomely. The extra height of the T10 makes cleaning much easier.

    I'm running a VE-200, VE 80w RHP, and some cabinet lighting from Amazon
