    Again thanks-Tim
    I'd usually give it 5-7 days to try feeding...and then I won't handle a new arrival until they've eaten a couple of meals.

    Re: Ball Python CARESHEET

    I started a thread and the first response I got may have pertinent information to the BP caresheet.

    It's about having 2 hides and whether they should be 'identical' or not.

    http://ball-pythons.net/forums/showt...hides-question

    If indeed their hides should be identical I hope the caresheet will be updated to reflect that because right now there is no mention that the 2 hides should be identical.

    There is no strict rule about the hides being "identical". It's a commonly suggested good idea is all. If they're identical, then you don't have to wonder if your snake is sacrificing healthy thermoregulation for the sake of a favorite hide. The caresheet describes a proper hide for ball pythons. So long as both hides fit that description, I don't believe they HAVE to be identical.

    Talking Re: Ball Python CARESHEET

    Hi there,

    I was always told it's best to leave your new addition alone for a few days to settle into its new home. Moving homes/enclosures can be stressful for anyone! With my girl I found that after a few days she was fine to handle

    hmm, define fine to handle. As in not striking at you? You should always wait till your snake has eaten for you before you start handling it, also give two days to digest a little after eating :/
