    The Journey Begins

    Hello everyone, I thought I would make a thread about myself and my twin seven year old daughters ball python keeping beginning. Today after months of convincing my wife the first stage of this process arrived. I ordered an ARS 7030 rack with a herpstat 1. Now that itís assembled I will have to acquire all the necessary hides and other husbandry items. https://m.imgur.com/gallery/mGNIzew Here is an imgur link to the set up so far, couldnít quite figure out the picture posting part.

    So exciting. I just started our adventure with my 7 and 10 year old little girls. My 7 year old is the one that absolutely looooooooves snakes. We have 2 ball pythons right now but she wants a boa, a rat snake, a garter snake, a milk snake and wants to have her own YouTube channel with all of her snakes. I am too protective to allow her to have her own YouTube channel though. Too many weirdos out there. Best of luck and enjoy your adventure!

    Re: The Journey Begins

    Congrats on starting your journey with your little girls man. When I first glanced at the pic of your rack I thought it was a coffee table :lmbo: I wish you all the best, and It gives me a lil joy to know you are planting the seeds of future reptile enthusiasts. This forum is awesome and the most helpful and useful resource out there for these beautiful animals and the community thats been built here is the absolute BEST.

    Thank you everyone for the kind words. So now a serious question. On a rack system like I have where does everyone prefer to place their thermostat probe? I did some reading and it seems mostly like a preference thing but Iím open to anyones input. A side note is I did get the heat tape insulated and I read some keep it between the insulation and the heat tape.

    Thanks, Ben.

    We went to a reptile expo this Saturday and finally took the dive. Going to attempt to attach images of what they chose.

    Super exciting! My little girl is turning one next month, and I've set up several reptiles, including a BP, so she can grow up handling and learning about animals. Good luck!

    Re: The Journey Begins

    Another update, tonight was my first feeding and both pythonís ate. The pied had a live mouse and the other of which I think is normal but was listed as enchi yellow belly took a f/t rat. Iím super pumped they are eating. My daughters were not grossed out and thought it was ďneatĒ so Iím hoping they stay interested. Thanks again everyone for the encouragement and kind words.
