    White-lipped python

    I was just wondering if anyone else on this forum has experience with this species. I just got this guy last week from JS Reptiles. He's a CH Northern (Sorong locality), estimated to be between 1-2 years old.

    I have him in a large tub for now. Humidity is around 80-85% without misting. Basking temp is about 93, warm side is in the high 80s, cool side at around 79. Paper towels on one side, and some Reptichip on the other with a hide so he can feel secure. It's my attempt at a quarantine tub.

    Re: White-lipped python

    They talk about white lipped pythons a lot on Morelia Python Radio as Owen, one of the hosts, has kept them for a while. Did a search and hereís three episodes for sure that cover them. Seems they can be a pretty challenging/advanced species from what I can gather. Very interesting though.

    You got yourself a stunner!

    I keep one myself and I think your params sound ok. Iíd drop the hot spot to about 90 and my guy seems to prefer the cool side and I keep the cool
    side mid 70.

    they can have bad sheds so def keep the humidity up there during shed time but doesnít have to be 80s all the time.

    what is the attitude like in yours ?

    I only held him briefly the day he came in the mail. He shot straight out of the bag and I had to scramble to grab him. Didn't get bit, but he was scared. The delivery guy was very rough with the package (even had it upside down...). Poor thing was stressed...but didn't musk me or try to bite. Just very flighty. He's been hiding away ever since.

    I've left him alone for about a week now. I don't know when he'll be ready to eat for me, but I wanted to make sure he was doing so before I started handling him.

    How long do you think I should expect to wait before he's interested in eating?

    (And thank you for you kind words. I'm very excited to have him!)

    Oh man, those Sorongs are gorgeous! I, too, will be interested in his temperament once heís settled. They can be feisty, but beautiful for sure! Congrats on an awesome pickup.

    I did start listening to that one but didn't get too far yet (work-related chaos). If it's slower today I'll be finishing it then. I'm really looking forward to it.
