Re: Life of Mopani!

Ah yea I want to do that, however the worry is the insane temperature drops that would happen if I did. I am currently in a loose-loose streak here. So far they are not getting ridiculously hot (I am ritualistically checking them each day with Temp Gun) and the temps aren't going crazy yet, but even so, with the UTH's going along with the lamps the temps are a tad low. Qizil sits right around 85-90 degrees Fahrenheit, which is actually working amazingly fine for him, but that is with the UTH and those two dang lamps. Mopani is sitting right at the same range too, which is again a BIT low by a few degrees but both need to be in the dang 90s, and more for Qizil it's I think suppose to be in the 95s.

And I know from experience that those temps will immediately drop down to low 70s the minute I turn the UTH's off and let things cool down. I'm not sure how to fix this problem before getting the thermostats as even when using high-heat emitting basking and spot lamps they never got to high temps without using the UTH's too. This dilemma is honestly quite annoying, and I don't want to risk having them sit in low temps for however long it will take to get the Thermostats.

Do you or anyone else have suggestions? Cause I would really love some, considering everything. I don't want to get my snakes sick in the process of getting good setups.

Re: Life of Mopani!

HELLO~ !

We are alive again. XD

And Mopani's permanent setup is now complete~ ! WITH A Thermostat, heck yea!

Mopani New Home - FOR SSNAKESS.jpg

Thermostat is hooked up to the UTH and set to 95 degrees Fahrenheight!
Doing well and sitting around good temps! It's heating up steadily but so far everything is just fine-- he is cruizing around checking everything out!

Ordered a pair of thermometers so I can keep tabs on the temps of both sides of the cage-- of which are coming hopefully this Saturday-- but everything's great so far! I am a very happy snake mommy!!

EDIT: Plz ignore the insane reflexions coming off the glass. X'D Didn't realize that until I uploaded it. Ehe oops!

Thank you! I forgot the exact name-- and it looks like the original website I bought them from no longer carries them-- but it was along the lines of a "Nest Fern" or something.

I actually have two of them in there-- the other one is more toward the back, just barely visible behind the logs.

Re: Life of Mopani!

Yea it is unfortunately. X'D
I'm used to it cause I live here. But I am fully aware of how stupidly high US prices are for even the simple things...Like fake plants.

We are very much money-grubs over here. X'D But eh, ya kind of just have to deal with it. I still manage to get what I need/can-- just need to wait and save up a bit more beforehand~

Dmurphy95, you just didn't live in exUSSR countries where normal food, fresh juices, iphone and a car it's a sign you have a success. Usually ppl have second hand European for $6K+ and a salary $350 is high one.

Re: Life of Mopani!

How do you like that cage? I'm shopping around for something similar.

I love it so far!
It's surprisingly durable, but light to carry around. And it holds in humidity amazingly well.

The only reason it didn't come with lights pre-attached (like I ordered it) is cause during the production they were forgotten. X'3 But they were really understanding and refunded me the price of the lights, so all good!

I love this thing for sure~

EDIT: It's a Boaphile, by the way! Half of one of their 6-foot long ones actually! Still got the other half sitting patiently for when I have another little pretty noodle to house in it~
