Don’t waste your money
I ordered this kit for a new ball python that would be a Christmas gift to my son. The water dish and hide cave are way too small. It says that it is supposed to be for a 20 gallon tank size and the heater sent says it’s for a 10 gallon tank and the thermometer is not the one pictured in the photo. There are no instructions for anything so I can’t get the thermometer to change from Celsius to Fahrenheit. The thermometer is not reading a temp that is needed for the snake even with a separately purchased heat lamp. I wish that I was able to see this in store before buying. There are far superior new snake kits at pet stores.
Poor choice for ball pythons
This kit is far from an ideal starter kit for a ball python. Overhead heat is preferable to a heat mat, and either way any heat source needs to be plugged into a thermostat. Aspen does not hold humidity well enough for ball pythons unless you live in a very humid environment, and it molds easily. Cypress mulch or coconut coir are much better options for keeping humidity high and won’t mold. Also you don’t really need a snake hook for a ball python, they’re typically pretty easy to handle as long as they’re handled regularly. Save yourself the money and stress and just buy a small hide, water bowl, cypress/coco coir substrate, thermostat, thermometer/hygrometer, ceramic fixture, and bulb, your ball python will thank you!
I really liked the items in this starter kit. I had no idea what to buy for my python, and this kit had it all. The only issue I had was that the thermometer was not working, but Chewy made it right!
