    Ok, I am pretty sure I have everything I need and everything but I just want to make sure. Here is what I have for my new Ball Python:

    - 15 Gallon Tank with heavy lid and clips
    - Large but cozy hide spot
    - Thermometer
    - Plants for extra hides on both sides
    - Good bedding for moisture
    - Undertank Heater
    - Heat lamp with 100 watt day and 75 watt night bulbs
    - Large Water Dish

    Thats everything I have so far. Do I need anything else or is this ok? We are going to pick him up at around 4:30-5:30.

    You also need something to monitor the humidity in the tank,which is so very importand.At night they need some more humidity tham during the day.Make sure he doesn't have too dry and also not too wet.
    I also would put a branches in the tank,as babies love to climb. :)
    I'm just thinking if a 100 watt bulb is too hot for a small tank?I would use a dimmer and try out the temps first(that's why one should set up a snake tank a few days to a week before,to try out things).
    Also make sure the snake can chose between cooler and warmer areas,also in the hiding places.Put one hide on the cool,the other hide on the warm place of the tank.

    I answered most of the questions in the other post. As far as humidity gauge, I will pick one up tomorrow sometime.
