Re: Baby Woma

Sure, I buy one of your DRMB's and then you go and buy a Woma...can't keep an empty tub, can you!

Currently housed in a sterilite tub, one end on a heat mat, with the herpstat set to 96. Probe is on the outside of the tub, so inside temp will be closer to 90 under the warm hide.

Current setup is a warm hide covering half the bottom of the tub, with a thick layer of open cell foam on top of the warm hide, then another hide on top of the foam for a vertical temp gradient. Water bowl is off the heat mat. Do woma pythons soak in the water bowl like boas and carpets? If needed I can set him up in a 10 gallon tank with enough space for a larger bowl. I wasn't expecting him to be quite so large since he's only a couple months old. He's eating fuzzy rats now.
