Ball Python and heat lamp - October 1st 2015, 02:56 AM

Hey guys, I've never owned a snake before and I am hearing mixed advice about what type of heating is best for a ball python. So far I know UTH is ideal but I've also heard mixed reviews about heat lamps - some saying it dries out your animal/blinds them if its white light. Others saying you need a heat lamp in addition to a UTH.
Anyone with experience able to clear things up?

A heat mat should be fine, but whatever form of heating you pick make sure you have a thermostat for it.

You can always change the form of heating in the future though.
