Hi, i may be getting a royal python in the new year and ive been reading alot up on them, and in the care sheets i have read they say to have a hot end and a cool end, how will i be able to achieve this, if i were to use a ceramic bulb?

Thanks.

The ceramic bulb must be mounted at one end of the vivarium, with no heating at the opposite end. The ceramic is then hooked up to a thermosta which regulates the temperature the "hot" end gets to. The other end will be cooler as it is further from the bulb, giving you a gradient down the viv.

I hope I have made it clear.. just complain if I havent :lol:

If you plan on buying a hatchling you will have to use a small tank such as a faunarium to begin with. These can be heated by placing a statted heatmat under one third of the tank.
