I'm bad, bad, bad. When I got my first bp (well it was a christmas gift so my mother bought it) she was sold a 10 gal tank with it. I was stupid enough to think that it would be able to live in a 10 gal it's entire life!
Thank goodness that I convinced my mother that I atleast needed the ball python manual. I got a general idea from that.....
But he has been better off since I found this website!
