Inside Our Facility
The PhD Exotics is located in sunny Southern California. We maintain a clean and well organized breeding facility that translates into thriving, breeding, and hatching ball pythons!
We use animal plastics racks to house subadults and adults and C-serpent hatchling racks to house babies and juveniles. Rack heating agents (flexwatt) are regulated by herpstat and helix thermostats. Our current substrate of choice is newspaper because it soaks excrement well and is inexpensive. F10 disinfectant and chlorhexidine in spray bottles are kept in stock for daily cleaning.
We also keep a high quality ultrasound handy during breeding seasons to track female follicle growth. This machine is priceless and I highly recommend its usage if you are serious about maximizing your breeding potential. If you would like to inquire or purchase a high quality and affordable ultrasound machine, please contact me.
A homemade incubator is used to produce the right temperature gradient to successfully hatch eggs. A wine cooler was converted into an egg hatching machine by adding heat tape, computer fans, water bottles, and using a to help regulate temperatures.
