    Hi there, we bought our first pet snake on Friday and I am rather alarmed by how hard it is to maintain a good temperature. First of all (in case it matters) - He is a Royal Python (mojave morph), 3 months old and about 2ft 1in. My assumptions are that he needs a temperature in the center of...

At the hot end I have a basking lamp and a UV bulb the temperature is about 35c, at the cool end I have a ceramic heater controlled by a thermostat which keeps this end about 24c. The problem I have at the moment is...

    I'm possibly getting a male common boa from a friend of a friend who no longer can take care of him (first boa after royals and a corn :D). He's got a ridiculously accurate heating system incorporated, but I'm worrying about the temperature in summer. Its a 4x2x2 viv, so he needs to go in a room...

    I have a Beardie, but I guess this question applies to a lot of reptile owners. The cool end is set to 80 using a stat. This pretty consistently gives hot end temps of 105-110. However, during the occasional bursts of warm weather we have had recently the hot end drops to the low 90's as it...

    We have just bought a gtp, it is currently still at the shop (we are collecting on monday) so that we could get the setup ready. As it is so small, we will be keeping it in a rub inside a viv. We are going to put the rub on top of something so that the bottom of the rub is at the halfway point...

    Ive had my rankins now for a few days and I've run into a problem with my temperatures, I don't know why this is happening, I could swear it wasn't beforehand, anyway..... I have a ceramic bulb, that was my heating of choice as I need night night heat as well so a bulb is no use, it's in a cage...

    Never done this before always controlled mats with mat stats but have heard rumours this can be done so looking for your opinions. rather than controlling mat with mat stat use a pulse stat (habistat) in order that once transfer from RUB to viv can utilise pulse stat to control ceramic rather...

    Hey folks, I'm thinking of installing a ceramic inside my 60x45x60 exo terra using a basic porcelain fitting and ceramic guard held in place by screwing through the mesh into a block of wood sitting on the top (hope this makes sense!) has anyone had any success using this method? Or what about...
