    Re: New Ball Python Owner!!!! Need Help and Advice Pleaseee!!!!

    If your hot side gets close to 90, cool side and ambient temps are 78-80, you have a large enough water dish and enough airflow, you should be fine. Those are the basic parameters. You can tweak it from there after a while.

    Hot side uth.

    My che is in the middle and my ambient is 78-80 throughout the entire tank. Your uth gives your snake a space to get warmer to digest food.
    Perhaps others do their setups differently, but it works for mine

    Okay, thank you! Also I have one bn link thermostat but I really cant get another one right now. If I do get another one in the coming months it will be another bn link. My room temp is usually between 70 and 75 so I think I should be okay considering that is quite low for snakes. And Ive been checking every couple days to make sure nothing changes and the temps are all right so I think I should be okay.

    You CAN continue to run your CHE without a thermostat or dinner, but why take the risk? An unregulated heat source can spike causing burns, neurological problems or even be fatal. Not worth the risk in my opinion.

    Why are you hesitant to get another thermostat??

I will be sure to lower the UTH temp on the warm side and move the CHE to the warm side as well. My only worry with moving the CHE to the warm side is the cool side becoming too cool.

    Something to consider: Different snakes have different personality types. If a normal or more basic morph gets bred, it's because they were a good pet, and owner absolutely loved them and wanted them to have children. Nippy, neurotic normals never get bred. For fancier morphs, the breeder is out to make money. If their breeder snake is neurotic and nippy they don't care, especially if they sell online. You don't let a good morph go to waste. But personality can be just as hereditary as a morph. That's why I recommend 100% of the time to buy local, either from a mom & pop reptile shop, local breeder, or best of all a reptile expo.

    Reptile expos are great, so you can have the chance to see the snakes in person, handle them, and find out their persoanlity. My last snake I bought (third BP) I got from the reptile expo. I could see that she was healthy, and despite being a less-common morph, she was relaxed and curious when I held her. I love her.

    As for your snake, apart from the temps being too high, your enclosure looks great. Nature and nurture develop a snake's personality. What genetics hasn't done, you can cultivate through regular handling. Don't take her out for too long, but make sure you hold your BP long enough to know they're safe. And keep at it.
