Monty

Return to Rescue Animals

Reserved for Rehoming…

Monty is a 12 year old, wild-type royal python. He’s believed to be male. His previous keepers bought him as a gift for their child, who has since grown up and moved out, so they felt it best to rehome him.

He was previously kept in a 3ft vivarium with a red light bulb. He had a polystyrene box, water bowl and was kept on newspaper. The enclosure was quite dirty and not adequate.

Monty arrived in good health, other than having retained spectacles from previous sheds. We will be monitoring his shedding cycles to see if this is a reoccurring issue. He is very friendly to handle.

Friendly boy looking for a retirement home.


Care Requirements:

Monty 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. Monty is fed a weaner rat every 2-4 weeks, depending on the size.
