depending on size---larger are not so requiring of high hum--temps should range from high side of 88-90---cool side 80-83

hum can range as low as 60-70 %---may be better for r/i--

one major consideration is the ability of the python to extend the length of its body fully---constriction of the lung area has long been attributed to r.i
