    Talking New to bloods have any tips?

    Hey there everyone!
    I recently picked up a young Blood Python from an expo, I have done quite a bit prior research. Just wanna hear what the community has to say and what tips you blood keepers may have!

    So far I have set up like follows:
    Humid substrate, kept damp.
    78% humidity high with 70% low , bumped up if need be with a light Misting of the cage.
    87 hot spot.
    2 hides , bowl big enough to soak in.
    A few fake plants.
    Foil on one side of mesh screen- gonna buy PVC enclosure for him once he gets size on him ( once he's around 2.5 ft)

    Animal information:
    Male
    4 months old
    Eating live - but will be transitioned to frozen
    Normal morph
    Super chill hasn't hissed or struck once in the short time I've had him.
    Named Mars

    Him:

    Congrats on your first blood! I probably wouldn't keep the substrate wet, or the humidity quite so high, with the limited air flow it could easily get moldy and icky in there fast, I usually am sitting around 60% humidity in my cages with no effort besides a water bowl in there. They like to be held securely, some start flailing up when held in the air so watch out, I generally sit down and let them crawl over my lap and floor instead of standing and trying to hold them. They are noisy snakes so if he starts huffing or hissing at you, it's likely just talk, it's easy to tell when they are really pissed off. Get your caging ordered now, they grow fast.

    Re: New to bloods have any tips?

    I have him in a Glass cage right now so there is quite a bit ventilation hence why I covered some part in foil, should I still power humidity?
