Description

Housing

We recommend that all Pythons are kept in wooden vivariums as they are better insulated than plastic or glass ones. For hatchlings, we recommend a 36-inch long vivarium, then upgrading to a 48-inch or larger vivarium once they reach adulthood. As Bredl’s like to climb, they should be kept in a vivarium that is a little taller than standard. Fix branches securely so that the snake is in no danger of falling.

Feeding

One defrosted mouse or rat should be fed to hatchlings on a weekly basis. As your python matures, you can then start feeding it fortnightly instead. Any food given to your python should be no bigger than the largest part of the body. All food should be defrosted in a refrigerator overnight, then brought up to room temperature before being offered to your snake either in tongs, or left in the vivarium for the snake to find.

Maintenance

Enclosures should be cleaned regularly, removing any waste as soon as possible. Regularly clean the enclosure, water bowl and all cage furniture with a reptile safe disinfectant.
