Ready for rehoming…

Dot is a mature, wild-type royal python. She is female and was handed in by her owners after they could no longer keep up with their 6 snakes.

Her previous housing was a 6x2x2ft wooden enclosure shared with 5 other pythons. She had with a red light bulb on one side of the enclosure and was kept on orchid bark, with lots of cover.

Dot arrived in good condition, other than being a little underweight and having some scars from previous injuries. She also seemed a little dehydrated. She is food reactive inside the viv so is best removed with a hook, but is then very well behaved when handled!

Food reactive but inquisitive to handle.

Care Requirements:

Dot will need a 4ft wooden vivarium as a minimum, to allow space to exercise and move around. A caged over-head heat source should be fitted with a suitable thermostat to maintain a warm-side temperature of 32C. The cool side should sit below 23C. A low-level UVB tube light of 5-7% should be provided. Dot is fed a small rat every 2-3 weeks.
