Another Python Update
Just wanted to give you guys a picture update on Albus! He's still doing great, growing so fast and it seems like he's always hungry. Im going to have to move him to young adult rats next week and adult mice only seem to stop his hunger for about 3 days lol.
He's getting to where he will be too big for the 10g before too long. Im not sure what kind of enclosure to get for him next. Id like to avoid aquariums if I can (they make heat and humidity a pain to control) but id still like him to be visible, does anyone have any recommendations for ball python specific enclosures that aren't too pricey?

He's a very pretty snake ^_^
The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of the act

I agree - he's adorable!
I like the Exo-terra enclosures. They aren't too expensive actually. But if you're still looking for a grow-out cage, you might want to find something temporary and save up for the permanent cage...
...so an aquarium might still be the best bet until you get the permanent cage...55 g Goldfish Tank - 5 Fancies, 2 Dojos

Thanks guys! I may consider an Exo-Terra if I can't find something with built in heating."At some point you aren't making the animal more dead...You are just making a bigger mess." - Demjor19

He looks good!
I prefer to keep all of ours in racks. Although they are not the best for display, you are able to keep paremeters dead-on. Check out Animal Plastics web site. They are who I buy our racks from, but they make nice display cages as well.-Jordan
