Sheet Heat

What do you need to keep a ball python and how big do they get?

Full-grown ball pythons are 3.5 to 5.5 feet long. They are however, much thicker around than some snakes. Here are some of the things ball pythons need, please do not take my opinions as fact as I am not a vet nor an expert. This is some what I've come up with based on research I've done. This is not a complete care sheet.

Heating/Humidity:
hot spot of 90-95 and cooler spot of 80-85, done with under-tank heater and/or heat lamp. UTHs work better, provide belly heat, and don't try out the cage. humidity of 50-60% and 70% during shed cycle. temps should be measured with accurite thermometers, and a UTH should run on a dimmer/thermostat.

Substrate:
aspen/newspaper/paper towel, there are some others work too. doesn't have to be very deep, 1 - 1.5 inches is fine.

Food/Water:
appropriate sized mouse/rat every 7-14 days depending on age. appropriate size is no larger than the largest part of the snake's girth. a water bowl should be provided in the cage that is large enough for the snake to soak in.

Hides/Security:
generally need 2 hides, one on each side, and some extra plant cover.

Cage:
can use specialized reptile cage, plastic tubs used by breeders, or a glass aquarium, (not recommended) ball pythons stress out if they are in open, large spaces, so they don't need a very long or tall cage.

I repeat, do not take my opinions as fact. Some people may consider them wrong and that's fine. There are many different ways to keep ball pythons.

Here are a few of the many sources of information I've used over time.
