Day time basking spot 29c to 32c, cool side 23c to 24c with an evening drop to 20c. A guarded 6% UVB linear bulb positioned on the warm side of the enclosure, covering no more than 1/3rd of the width of the enclosure, is required to provide a day/night cycle and to benefit from UVB. Minimum two hides, one on the cool side, one on the warm side and plenty of places to crawl over and under.  Large water bowl to allow for full submersion in treated tap water (e.g. Reptisafe).  Recommended substrate - 70/30 organic soil/play sand mix or coir or lignocel.

COSMOS

COSMOS

COSMOS the carpet python is about 5 years of age, we've been advised he's male but not confirmed. Although he has shown no signs of aggression he's not keen on being handled and will try to flee at any given moment during handling sessions. He needs an experienced keeper who is willing to spend time with him to gain his trust. We think he'll be a proper charmer if given the chance! Fed variety of defrosted food (mammal/bird)  once every 3 to 4 weeks. 

REQUIREMENTS: Minimum 3' x 3' x 2' vivarium with a guarded and thermostatically controlled heat lamp on the roof of one side of the enclosure. Humidity gauge to measure humidity, aim for 40 - 60%. Day time basking spot 32c to 36c, cool side 22c to 26c with an evening drop to no less than 16c. A guarded 6% UVB linear bulb positioned on the warm side of the enclosure, covering no more than 1/3rd of the width of the enclosure, is required to provide a day/night cycle and to benefit from UVB. Minimum two hides, one on the cool side, one on the warm side and plenty of places to crawl over and under plus climbing opportunities being semi-arboreal. Large water bowl to allow for full submersion in treated tap water (e.g. Reptisafe). 50/50 organic soil/play sand mix or coir or lignocel. Strictly solitary.

Turtles

FLORA
FLORA
SAGE
SAGE

We have two musk turtle looking for their forever homes. FLORA and SAGE are to be rehomed separately. Ages are not known but they are adults. Flora can be shy but she comes out onto the basking area in early evenings to dry off her shell. Sage is curious and is very keen on food. They are all great characters and fun to watch.

REQUIREMENTS: Minimum 3ft tank per turtle but the bigger the better with approximately 12" depth of water. Play sand can be used as substrate along with large rocks - they must be bigger than the an inch in diameter to prevent accidental swallowing. Include places to hide and aquatic plants can be used to provide cover and enrichment. Appropriately sized external cannister filter (2 - 3x capacity of the tank) with filter media needed. Water to be heated between 23c - 25c using a non-glass and durable aquarium heater. Basking dock must have an overhead heat bulb to achieve a basking temperature of 29c - 32c. A linear T5 or T8 UV bulb is required to provide adequate UVB (to calculate UV % needed check Arcadia's lighting guide). Frequent tank maintenance is a must and water parameters should be tested regularly.
