  • There have been nearly 1,000 more of you every week for two weeks. That’s wild. Who are you all? What do you do? Why are you here? Did anyone read this or is the adorable frog too distracting?

  • Today I am here to deliver my woma python care guide! Make sure you save this post if you ever have reason to refer back to it. 
1. Temperament
Woma pythons are generally quite docile. This is dependent on habituation to handling as is true for any species. They are known for having a strong feeding response and will rarely miss a meal. This response will generally only kick in with the scent of food so it should not be a problem in handling situations. 
2. Size
The average full-grown size range is from four to six feet, but the snakes can reach a foot or two beyond this; females will grow larger than males. Although they grow long, the snakes remain lean and don’t develop the girth of a ball or carpet python.
3. Enclosure
Many keepers will report that in their experience, womas can be very active and appreciate more room to explore. As they are terrestrial snakes, height is less of a requirement than length. I personally keep my approximately three foot (one metre) woma in a four foot long enclosure. Woma pythons are burrowing snakes in the wild, so loose substrate with plenty of depth is ideal. They have evolved and adapted to safely live in sand in the wild, so this is a great substrate option in captivity, unlike for most pythons. Another dry, loose substrate would be fine. Hides should still be provided as captive womas don’t fully burrow like sunbeam snakes or Kenyan sand boas. A water bowl large enough to soak in is best.
4. Temperatures and Humidity
An adult woma requires a basking area of 33-38 degrees Celsius or 92-100 degrees Fahrenheit. For a hatchling, basking should not exceed 33 degrees Celsius or 92 degrees Fahrenheit. Low humidity is required unless shedding, in which case 50% should be sufficient. It isn’t vital to check humidity as long as you don’t live somewhere with high levels naturally. 
Leave a comment if you have any questions or if there’s something I’ve missed. I hope you have enjoyed this post and that it has been informative in some way.

  • Atlas the 15-year-old Pacific Gopher update! He’s now been here about four months now and is settling in beautifully. He has loved having heat and is putting on a little bit of needed weight since being here. Atlas was previously owned by people who loved him but weren’t educated in snake care. He is smaller than he should be because of that, but he is a survivor and I hope is going to have a good few more years left in him. He has quickly become an important member of the reptile family and will be staying here with me for the rest of his life.
