I am thinking about getting a pet python. What do I need to take care of it? What should I have before I bring it home?

You'll need an enclosure with a secure cover so that the snake can't escape. The enclosure should be at least the 30 gallon size. Heat and light equipment that maintains the temperature at 82-95 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and no lower than 75 degrees Fahrenheit at night. Snakes need higher than normal humidity, so add a large water bowl that can't be tipped over. Diet can consist of pre-killed rodents (rats and mice). In many states in the U.S., it is illegal to own pet snakes, so you must check the laws where you live before purchasing a snake.
