    Ok thanks, the hardest part of the humid hide will be getting the Snake to use it. She has been in the cool side hide 24/7 since i put it in her home 10 days ago. She might get pissed if i pull it off her?

    No, don't pull her hide away. You'd be surprised at how enticing the smell of fresh damp moss is to a snake- they'll find it & go in on their own, as long as it's the right size & not over-heated; be sure to leave room for both the snake AND plenty of moist moss when you pick out a container to convert into a "humid hide". Preferably the plastic container should not be clear, since snakes love some "atmosphere" (darkness).

    As mentioned previously, it's best to give a BP at least 2 identical hides (one warm & one cool)- but the humid hide (hide #3) doesn't have to match, as the moisture is an enticement on it's own, & you want to place the humid hide somewhere in the middle as far as temperature. (slightly heated is okay- but it should be cooler than the warm hide)

    Dont worry about the snake not eating. Post a picture of your snake and let us see how small she is. I have several ball pythons that have not eaten in 6 months and I am not worried but it all depends on how big the snake is.

    DUDE, STOP OFFERING INPUT WITHOUT READING THE THREAD.
    The animal is 250grams as previously stated by OP. A ball python that small should not go 6 months without eating.

    In their defence I didn’t read through the whole thread of 85 posts either and they did end with the sentence “ depends on how big it is “

    In my defense this is at least the third time in this thread that they've offered input without reading pertinent information already posted...

    UVB Bulbs

    Has anyone seen the effects(if any?) UVB Bulbs have on BP's? I read one thing that says the Light can reduce stress and increase appetite???
