Yearling setup during highVeld winter

Postby Mav3rick » Tue Jun 14, 2016 5:58 pm

Does any own a green tree python and reside in the highveld. I currently own a yearling and I'm battling to meet humidity and heat requirements during this winter period? Any advice on how to set up or what setup is ideal for them ?
Any tips and tricks to get them up to health and eating well again

What temperatures is your room experiencing ? For arborial pythons cermaic heaters on PID thermostats are the most powerfull & reliable. 18mm wood will hold heat best. Waterproofing the wood and using a natural soil substrate with plants will provide the required humidity.

Got my cage at 28-30c with a 70% humidity

Currently in a exoterra.

Where could I get hold of a ceramic heater ?

28-30'c & 70%H is a a good climate for Green Pythons. What temp & Humidity where you trying to get to ? What is wrong with the snake ?
