    Hi Sarah,

    Welcome to Herp Center! I cannot help you with breeders in the UK, but I can tell you that Ball Pythons make GREAT pets! Yeah sometime they get picky at feeding time but over all they have a great temperment!

    lol Steven that I know only to well about it took us ages to get the one we rescued when I was a child, to eat at times but we got there with it. It was also great to handle and is why I got hooked on them and snakes in the first place. Chris I am in the midlands near Birminham do you have the url for prestige herps at all? never mind I found it their site seems to be down right now though due to it being made changed. Oh I have also considered adopting an unwanted ball from a rescuse centre as an option.

    Here are some links to the heat panels we've bought or researched:

    In the United States, you can get them here:

    It's best to use them with a proportional thermostat:

    I hope that helps!:)

    Cool thats ideal for my set up I am guessing from the blub that they are mounted in the same way as heat mats ie under the tank, seems I got the blub a bit wrong and they sit under the viv lid wont that mess up ventilation as most vivs have top or high side ventilation? I have seen those around on varrious sites or can order them in so no probs getting those at all when the time is right. Infact seem to offer all I will need for my set up and for reasonable prices so thats all good.

    I am looking at this as my viv dimentions L 48in. x W 15in. x H 23in. would I be better off with something smaller while its a baby or will loads of hides keep it from being to stressed and feeling to out in the open?

    On thinking long and hard about it I think I will be going for the reptile radiators as heating and a reptile light for the basking spot. hides and other furniture are a matter of chossing what I feel like when the time comes oh and I will get some sort of log for climbing on and rubbing to aid shedding. I am considering using air plants as part of the deccor but would like advice on that as to the possible toxic effect on the snake. I already know they will cope with the viv conditions without a problem. I am considering getting the starter kit and progressing to this set up once the baby is older.

    mmm I heard back about the starter kit and I dont think I will be going for it. The viv they provide is a 12" flat geo which to me seems a little small seing as hatchlings are on avegrage 14 to 17 inches.
