Python Queensland Carpet Health Information

Because Queensland Carpet Pythons are semi-arboreal, they should be kept in a tall enclosure with plenty of sturdy branches for climbing. The temperature within the cage should be between 80 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit, with a basking area of about 95 degrees. At night, the temperature should drop to between 70 and 75 degrees. Unless the animals are to be bred, they do not need to undergo brumation in the winter.

Many breeders use multiple males to breed Queensland Carpet Pythons. If this technique is used, they should be carefully observed so the snakes do not hurt each other. The two males and the female should be allowed to interact for a while, after which the extra male should be removed. If all goes well, the remaining male and the female will copulate at that time. Placing the skin of another male in the tank with the breeding pair can have the same effect.

Prior to breeding, the Queensland Carpet Pythons should undergo a period of brumation. Usually in late October, the temperature in the hot region of the tank is gradually decreased about five or ten degrees. The temperature should remain low for between 8 and 12 weeks, after which it should be gradually increased to normal. Once the temperature has been increased, the animals should be left together until spring, being separated once every week to feed. During the breeding season, males often refuse to eat. About 20 days after ovulation, the female will shed. She will lay her eggs around 25 days after shedding, and the eggs will hatch between 49 and 64 days of incubation at about 86 degrees Fahrenheit.
