    As some of you may have noticed, the site formerly at ReptileRooms.co.uk has been removed and you are now being forwarded here, to the .com.

    This decision has not come lightly and has been seriously considered for several weeks now. ReptileRooms.co.uk was just simply not as productive as it could've been and it was mostly being used & abused by some of the less upstanding members of the reptile community. Plus, many of the registered UK members were posting here on the .com anyway because they were getting a greater response to their requests for help, and advice.

    All of the UK content has been moved over to this website, except for the forum posts. I have backups of the UK database, and I will be going through it to check for anything I've missed.

    So, welcome, enjoy your chunk of ReptileRooms.com, and please don't hesitate to let us know if you have any questions, suggestions or issues with the site. ;)

    As with the other areas of the forum, please do not use this area to advertise animals for sale, or to offer to buy animals. This is not a classifieds :(

    Hello, just found the site - never knew we had a UK one so not missing it.

    I have a Northern Pine snake, about 6 months old and 50cm and doing well. I am struggling a bit with temperatures - I am told she likes 88 degrees. I have a Perfecto (sliding door) glass vivarium (about a foot high, 30" wide and 16" deep) - I have hemp substrate and a heat mat under the glass, taped to the bottom of the viv with a foil covered rubber mat in the void. The thermostat reads 95 degrees and the thermometer in the tank varies a bit, I am told the glass can crack if it gets too hot, but the temp on the hemp (1cm deep) is 75-80, on the sheet of paper below it is 85-90

    A guy in a local reptile shop says I need a lamp by day (mat turned off) - but the 40w one he sold me doesn't seem to keep the temp on the hemp up above 80

    Should I use mat and bulb all the time (white bulb or red), should the hemp be deeper or shallower or gone, does it matter (to the snake) if it is 75 or 80 or 88 degrees - I have a single female and am not planning to breed - she is the family pet

    She is a brilliant eater and wolfs her food down and is much less jumpy (than when I 1st got her) and enjoys being held, but does not grip tightly like a friends baby Corn does

    She likes to sit in her hot house, rarely using the cool one, she is quite active during the evenings and will wander round - she feels cool when I pick her up but I have warm hands most of the time

    Do they like hides with low ceilings they can really snuggle in to or more airy ones?

    I have read heaps but these are questions I have not been able to locate answers for - and I am sure in time I will get to know what she likes / doesn't, but for now.....

    Confused of Bristol.
