    Personally I'd never use vinyl because I don't like breathing it, & snakes would be enclosed with it & they're far smaller & more vulnerable than we...

    Had a thought, what about non-adhesive vinyl sheet cut to fit after the corners/edges are sealed? I've seen some enclosures utilize it. It's water...

    Oh yes, it was fine, with my help. Just a little complicated to remove the tape, as it was a rattlesnake, but fortunately their scales are quite...

    That would work great and really I don't think I would cover it in foil. The only reason I suggested it with carboard is to keep it from absorbing...

    I have more of the PVC board, I will cut that to fit the screen and cover it in foil. Thank you!
