Hello everybody! I am new here as well as my albino burmese python. i know what you are going to think because i have already read it and heard it, however i am a first time snake owner and this burmese is, well, my first snake and apparently this is not a good choice snake for beginners but i have been wanting an large snake and have done a lot of research before i bought my lil' creature but there are still some things id like to touch on. first thing id like to ask is, and i know this is a seemingly difficult task, yet maybe someone can give me some assistance without having to go to a vet. due to the simple fact that i live in a pretty small town out in north dakota and do not know if there are really any experienced vets. anyway, i wud like some help on possibly telling me what gender my abp is. i don't know a whole lot about probing and popping but is it dire that i get that done? next, briefly, i custom built my own enclosure it is 5' long x 30" wide x 30" tall is this appropriate for how (assumingly very) big he will get? or do i need something taller? i just ask because from what i read it seems they dont do a whole lot of climbing as they get older. another question i have is what is the best way from all of you experienced owners is the best way to get rid of mites assuming he ever does acquire them? ive read about it yet never seen them in person and i hear many different things about many different products and it seems that they are very up and down. well that seems to be about all i have for now and below are pictures and believing that my python is a male his name is adolf. well thank you for your time and hope to hear response soon! thank you for allowing me into your forum and community!
