Almost as bad as calling normal looking thick-tails "run of the milli"

There's a few species I'm keen on in the next list, I'm hoping Depressa gets brought in at the same time. But Northern blueys and wheeleri will be my highlight.

In the future it would be good to see ornate and bicycle/crested dragons added to the list. Even stellatus knobtails.

Are Whips in the next 6 Snow? If you can get a whip past her surely you can manage an Adder, it would be less problematic to keep.

You mentioned you thought you may be keeping the BTS a little dry, are you trying to maintain the humidity a little higher than you would for other species?

I heard whips are on the next list and yes, I'll be able to get a whip past the  other half :)

I give it a light mist now and then. But mostly it's just has the same humidity as the pythons. Talking to other keepers over east they report bad sheds with low humidity. I thought I'd just see how it goes, rather than try and raise the humidity. And it went well :)

Hi Snowman........My humidity for my BTS is kept the same as my pythons had no dramas yet had complete whole sheds. But only had the one shed each at this stage so will keep an eye on it.

Yeah it's interesting that we have been able to get good sheds in low humidity. My room humidity is about 35%. Some people use a moist hide, but I don't like that idea at all. Just seems like a good way to grow bacteria. For me as long as my animals shed properly then I think things are fine.
They do like water though, so a good size water bowl is always a good idea.

Best part about the list in my opinion.
