Lola

Return to Rescue Animals

Ready for rehoming…

Lola was handed in by his previous owners due to a relationship breakdown, and no longer being able to care for him. He is a beautiful royal python of unknown morph, probed as male. His age is unknown as the previous owners had him from someone who did not know his age.

His previous enclosure was a 4ft wooden vivarium, on orchid bark and lots of cover. It was heated by a heat mat, and he was fed large weaner rats every 2-3 weeks.

He arrived in good condition, however did display some whistling when breathing, and has an underdeveloped left eye. The vet has checked this and advised to monitor as no worrying signs of a respiratory infection. He also shows a genetic trait called duck-billing, where his nose turns up, which does not affect him at all. He has taken food brilliantly for us, and is in good condition in general.

He is head shy, but placid and sweet-natured. Lovely to handle.

A sweet snake, in need of some confidence building.


Care Requirements:

Lola will need a 4×1.5×1.5ft 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. He is currently being fed large weaner rats every 2-3 weeks, and will move to small rats after a few feeds, every 4-5 weeks.
