Ever wonder what size your BP *should* be?


There is no "Right" answer. I've been documenting monthly weights on 20 baby ball pythons hatched in 2003.  It appears there is a LARGE potential variance in "Normal" weight at different months.  This is NOT a scientific study, but it is some interesting observations.

I weigh every snake every month

Melamine racks are VERY heavy!  I added wheels

I built home made breeder racks out of 3/4" melamine for my ball pythons. 

Thanks for the Idea Marcus Jayne!  These racks work great!

Several people have asked me how to keep the heat in the rack.  I use foil insulation on the back board and put the heat tape on top of the insulation.


Working on an incubator~ still a work in progress!
