I’m planning on getting three baby ball pythons any tips
A few suggestions:
If they aren’t all coming from the same breeder, quarantine them all. This means separate enclosures, sterilizing equipment between each (such as feeding tongs), washing hands or wearing gloves between handling/cleaning. I personally keep quarantined new animals in separate rooms with an air purifier and feed/handle/clean on separate days from my others.
Have your enclosures set up several days in advance BEFORE the snakes arrive. You want temps and humidity to be stabilized and correct before putting your snakes in there.
Don’t handle them until they are eating consistently. I personally wait 3 meals.
Thanks there all coming from a breeder that’s like 20 minutes from me house that I found on MorphMarket ps is it Easiest. To care for them in a tub or aquarium
I think A tub is better because it holds humidity better but thats a very controversial
For younger snakes it’s better to keep them in a tub so they’re more comfortable. I think that it’s pointless to put them in a tank because you rarely ever see them except at night.
Thanks this is my first ball pythons
For your first I wouldn’t recommend getting 3 at once. If you really want to you can but there’s a large learning curve to it and it’s easier to learn with 1 than 3.
^ I would agree with this as well, start with one and see how it goes.
As far as tubs vs tanks go, I know it’s the never ending debate and everyone has a different opinion. Personally I use both and haven’t had issues with either. You just want to to find a happy medium where it’s big enough for them to stretch out, have a few hides, substrate, water bowl, etc, but cluttered enough that they feel secure.
