    Brazilian Rainbow Boa Tub Size

    Hi
    I currently have 2 ball pythons, a corn snake, and a Brazilian rainbow boa. I know I will be getting more snakes and am just tired of all the tanks and bins, so i'm getting a rack system
    Just wasn't sure about the tub size for an adult brb? I want to make sure I get a rack system that is the correct bin size for him, as well as my others, but he will get the largest.
    thank you

    My adults will fit in a 41-qt tub rack.

    Note you can't run them in the same rack with your ball pythons due to the temperature differences - BRB's need to run a touch cooler.

    The minimum hot side temp for BP is 85. Top is 85 for rainbow boa. So why couldn't you keep them in the same rack?

    Because you really don't want to keep BP's with a minimal 85*F basking spot, they do better if it's around 90*F. If you're running ambient temps for them then that's different.

    That said, can BRB's have issues with ambient temps over 85*F, not belly heat. They can lie on an area with higher belly heat temps as long as they can keep their heads somewhere cooler. It's not ideal but they seem to be a little smarter than ball pythons are about keeping away from areas that are too hot.
