Re: Ball Python enclosure

You should be fine going straight into that enclosure. Like the others said, just make sure you've got several proper hides and plenty of clutter. Avoid half log hides and "hides" like skulls, and other decorative stuff (too many horror stories of snakes getting wedged in and stuck) and opt for single entry cave style hides or basic box style hides like those made by Reptile Basics. Many people advocate for identical hides as well, so that the snake won't sacrifice proper temps in favor of security.

If you do run into feeding issues, it may help to downsize the enclosure temporarily until your snake is eating regularly. But it certainly won't hurt to try the larger enclosure.
