I'm the proud owner of a baby Coastal Carpet Jaguar Python.
He will get to be around 9 feet long and need a fairly large enclosure. Along with the other plants, I would like to add a Nepenthes in there. This is where you guys, the nep experts, come in...
First question I have is what would happen should the little guy decide to drink out of the pitcher? Let's ignore the fact that anything I have is still years from that size While we're at it, let's also assume that the Nep can be placed in a low to no snake cruising zone so that it isn't trampled to death.
Second question. Which Nep would be best? The enclosure will be approximately 4-5 feet wide x 3 feet deep x 4-5 feet tall. Lowest possible temp will be 72 degrees F, with a basking spot in the mid 80's to possibly 90's. A night-time drop of 10 degrees could be provided in the basking area. Humidity will be no lower than 30% and most likely stay around 60-70%. Will be fluorescent lighting on top with timers.
Bonus points for suggestions that are hardy enough to withstand a little abuse and/or brings out the color of his eyes
