I've got a cage around the lamp in the photo so the light doesn't burn them. I'm looking into alternate heat methods, but i'm not sure which one(s) best (ie. Heat cable up the tree: seems natural, heat pad on side of enclosure: not usually effective, heat bulb with screen like i've got: functional but not exactly aesthetically appealing, heat entire room with space heater: not very economical though very effective). Certainly open to suggestions and opinions. I want these two to be as at home as possible. The enclosure seems to be doing them well, it retains humidity well, and I don't need a super powered light because it insulates well also. They've been eating well, are still a bit timid but coming around to handling. The male is more resistant than the female, which surprised me, usually (at least in my experience) the females of the snake species (Python Regius, BCI, Elaphe Gutatta Gutatta, Lampropeltis Getula Californiae) are more agressive than the males. At any rate, I appreciate all the input.
