    Jungle Carpet Python Cage

    So im getting my jungle carpet python soon... like within the next week or so...

    and basically i moved akua into the rack (cause this was his house) and totally revamped it for a Jungle Carpet Python... thinking yesss a snake what will use the vertical space more than akua! yayy!
    aha
    so heres the cage


    Its an old Cabinet style TV revamped - made it a year ago...
    do yall think i should add anything else? i have 2 vines, 3 perches, the tile in the back left corner has an Under Tank Heater under it... then you have the basking area, and in the back right of the cage [[you can hardly see it]] i have a humid hide...

    Thanks
    -Sara

    Re: Jungle Carpet Python Cage

    The cage looks good though for a Morelia spc. alittle empty. If your carpets are anything like mine they'll spend 90% of their time in the branches. So they'll like a number of branches that span the cage. They also may not use any hides that are offered so a well planted cage would be a plus to give hiding options. I've included a few pictures of my Darwin Carpets cage to give you some ideas. Good luck with your JPC's you'll enjoy them.

    Given the temps and humidity that you'll have to have in the cage, just about any tropical plant needing part shade to full light, moist ground, and high humidity. Will do well. I find ferns, pathos, broms, orchids, different forms of dieffenbachia, even monkey pitcher plants, grow well in any cage thats kept over 60% humidity. With the enviorment you'll have you have lots of choices.

    If you check out nurseries you can find small starter tropical plants for pretty cheap. You're not looking for big office specimen plants. And many of the plants that wil be useful in your situation can be easily rooted in a glass of water. So one plant bought may give you several plants.
