Housing: Juveniles should be housed in a smaller enclosure approximately 12"x12"x12" is sufficient with an adequate perch. Adults should have at the least 2' x 2' x 2' also with an adequate perch.
Hide box: As their name suggests Green Tree pythons mainly stay in trees. They will not require a hide box as they will stay on the perch. But having multiple perch options in the warm area and cool area is an excellent idea.
Temperature: Green Tree Pythons are a tropical snake and seldom have temperatures lower than 70 degrees Fahrenheit. The basking temperature should be between 86 and 88 degrees Fahrenheit with a cool area of 78 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
Lighting: No lighting requirements. We have heat lights on our cages to maintain the heating requirements that the Green Tree Pythons need. Also a light is helpful to maintain visual on your animal while cleaning and to see if there are any issues.
Bedding: There are a variety of substrates that work really well for Green Tree Pythons. Anything from Newspaper to aspen or cypress wood. Having a substrate such as cypress or coconut will also help you maintain their humidity requirements.
Feeding: Never feed a snake a meal that is larger than the snakes mid body size. When you purchase a snake from us we will tell you their feeding schedule and what we are currently feeding them. Juvenile Green Tree Pythons should be fed every 5-7 days. Adults (over 2 years of age) can be fed every 10-14 days however can be fed more or less.
Water: Having a large water bowl in the enclosure will help you maintain the Green Tree Pythons humidity requirements as well as giving them an adequate place to drink from. Misting several times a day will help to maintain humidity requirements as well as make sure that your Green Tree Python doesn't get dehydrated.
Humidity: 40% - 70% we accomplish this by having automatic misters on our Green Tree Pythons as well as a large water bowl within the enclosure.
