would a 48"L x 18"w x 17"H be to big for a 45" ball python
no such thing as too big IMO.
Just give it somewhere somewhat smaller to hide, and it'll be happy there.
that makes more sense cuz that's what i just didn't want her to feel insecure. I read in a book that putting them in a enclosure to large can make them stressed and not eat. thank you for the help!
it`s hard to know which information is right sometimes, but there are some VERY experienced and knowledgeable keepers of Ball pythons on this forum, I would listen to them first! (The wild is a much bigger place than the enclosures we keep them in in captivity)...
I agree--Big is fine as long as you give them hides! The wild is huge, but there are small places for the young ones to curl up in and get away from danger! The issue is when people put a baby ball python in a big empty tank with one hide that's probably too big for it!
Yes, that`s true, although this animal is almost 4 feet long, so the tank should be fine, as you say though, nice fairly tight fitting hides.
OK thanks a lot i appreciate the help you all have given me i hope she will like the new cage
