Don't really have a suggestion, but I can say I regret letting my non-ball python collection go when I got on board with balls. The main reason was because I had too little space and too many mouths to feed. No I have tons of space and wish I could get them back Sad

Find cheaper food supply so you can justify keeping them and just keep them in racks or bins..? /: sorta stuck between a rock and a rock. :|

I'm sorta in the same boat about my Irian Jaya. It was already enough that I was selling my beautiful but pain in the *** cinny bp for a snake that'll get much bigger, but I went an got a package deal! (I mean 2 for half the price of 1, who wouldn't?!).

You might be able to find a friend who wants a pet snake for a little while, until you get the breeding project running smooth?

good luck

Yea, my IJ carpet is like that.. she'll fight to stay in there and then when she knows she's lost that fight its BOOM time to try to catch onto anything Im walking past...I named her
Velcro because the first day I got her I was walking up the stairs and she just latched onto the railing and wedged herself against the wall.. lol

That's what I have done with most of my boamasters. There is a perfect piece of melamine you can get from home depot and all you have to do is cut off 6 or 7 inches off the back and it fits perfectly in the middle as a divider and the color isn't too far off. My spilt BM's seem like the perfect size for my BP's. I have even cut a slot in the divider to fit a RHP that both sides share.

I bought all the heat tape I needed to do it but gave up. I don't think there is really a safe way to use heat tape in a boamaster. It's too thick to place underneath and putting it inside could cause the snake to tangle up or get the electric connections wet from humidity. I looked into it for a while and some people had some tricks, but none looked really safe to me. Because of the larger space, versus a tub, I think the heat tape would have trouble keeping up the ambient temps for balls. Unfortunately it looks like I have to spend about $330 for heat panels vs. the $30 I spent on heat tape Sad I'm sure there is a way to use the heat tape, I just haven't thought of it yet.
