snake_girl sorry to hear about your BP mine got burnt too a couple years ago. I put him in a glass fish tank and used a heat lamp over top with paper towels on the bottom of the tank. I now use a heat pad under the tank on the out side(it is an adhesive pad) so the snake is never directly on it. There are no inconvenient wires running out of the tank this way. And if you must use a heat rock which i strongly apose, you can just wrap a thick rag around it. The recovery from the burn was slow for my bp, even after 2 sheds it was still raw. But hes fine now and his were a little more severe. I think your bp with do just fine, everyone gave you a bunch of good tips no need to worry too much. I hope you and your bp the best of luck.
Steve Irwin is my idol.
