🐍 AVAILABLE TO ADOPT🐍
HENRY is the sweetest boy, He is a real darling when in and when out of his enclosure, He is stunning!
He has had his fecal exam and it is all clear :)
He has a minimum enclosure requirement of 4ft, but as always if you can go bigger definitely do so! Just add LOTS of foliage, hides and general clutter 🥳😁
Overheat heat is essential, a halogen bulb (with guard) attached to a dimming thermostat is the best form of heat you can use, however ceramic heater, deep heat projector, basking bulbs are also fine providing they are caged and on an appropriate thermostat.
Heatmats are a no go with heavy bodied snakes such as royals.
Uv is optional but we highly recommend providing it if you can! The arcadia 6% T5 pro kit would be perfect a guard on this would also be beneficial :)
He is currently based in Preston, Lancashire
Minimum adoption donation and process applies, Lifetime Rescue back up and support provided :)
PLEASE NOTE HENRY HAS NOT HAD HIS SEX CONFIRMED AS WE DO NOT PROBE HERE, PET ONLY HOMES FOR OUR RESCUES.
