been in progress for a while but now at a stage he can move in.

Its 4ftW X 2ftD X 3ftH, Using a 250w ceramic on stat, just a small 15w pygmy bulb for lighting. Log very expensive, but branches fairly cheap from camzoo. Seem to be getting good temps with the 250w but may treat him to a AHS heater in the future.

Still have a few things to ad, maybe a decent 3D background and quite a bit of greenery, but will come in time.

Ignore the cable wrapped round branch using a temp sensor to monitor temps over last day or so before moving him in just not took it out yet.

nice, do you stick your logs on because i may be geetin a jcp and dont know how to put the sturdy branches on without him eating glue/silicone
No mate I have used brackets and screws on one end of each branch and screws with another type of bracket through the vents, just to make it secure as possible.

few have said he is something different but sold to me as a banded coastal, either way he is one of the best snakes I have had.:smile:

As for the IJ still being a pain mate, I have got her taking fresh kill now and again, just not regular.

looks okay to me. Could do with some leaves and stuff to make it feel more cosey.

Shot; Why don't you try making some constructive comments instead of just trying to belittle people you bell end!!!!

Lovely snake, and the enclosure aint half bad either!

Just a tip though, if you switch the pigmy bulb for an energy saving one 9/11 watt's then it will give out more light which also looks more natural and soft, but with less wattage so less of a heating effect (not that 15w will have much of an effect in a huge enclosure)

Thanks for all the suggestions, as stated in my first post I still have things to sort in it, background and greenery is the main bits. But the shelf is a good idea as well I think, so will sort that tomorrow.:smile:
