hi guys! my name is heather, i'm a brand new ball python owner. picked her up at the sacramento reptile show last sunday. i'm pretty new to the whole herp thing - owned a small corn for half a minute many years ago, but that's the extent of my experience. right now i have her in a 40 gallon tank with a UTH from reptitherm, the larger size. i'm hitting the right humidity in the tank (i think, sitting right above 50), but the warm side is at a temperature of 75, which is obviously cooler than i'd like. i have a supplemental lamp with a basking spot lamp of 100w. should i add that to the warm side to bring up the temp? it seems like the darn thing gets so warm. can i leave it on during the day without fear of fire if i'm not home? would wrapping the sides/back of the tank in a background help bring temps up? attached a couple of pics of the tank setup as well as calpurnia herself, who is gorgeous if i must say. thanks for the help!
