Housing

Hatchlings are kept in smaller boxes 6x4inch with paper towels layered as substrate. I keep hatchling tubs very basic with a small hide and waterbowl,the main aim is to provide an environment in which the snake feels safe to feed.

As the hatchling grow I scale up the tub size and water bowl to suit, using  5ltr, 9ltr, and 18ltr, the substrate is replaced by aspen allowing the hogs to burrow.

I find 18ltr ideal for adult males and sub adult females.

Large adult females are moved to a 22×15 tubs to allow a good sized laying box during breeding season.

Snakes are spot cleaned daily and fully cleaned every two weeks
