    Re: New snake tank add-on's and toys?

    Was wondering about pvc and how well it would work. Was kind of thinking of using a larger pvc cap with smaller tubes off of it for them her to crawl around from as well and makong another hide hole at the same time.

    There could be issues retrieving her from such a thing if she happens to get stuck or doesn't want to come out, that's why I went ahead and kept mine short enough he can't cram himself entirely inside.

    I have lots of foliage. All around the back of the tank and around the hides and my boy loves them. He loves to explore and climb around in them and they make him feel safe and not so exposed when he moves from one side of the rank to the other

    I used black PVC from Home Depot for all of mine - hopefully you can see through the reflection

    How much did this cost to make, if you remember? I was considering making a similar jungle gym when my boy moves up to his next size of enclosure, since he doesn't seem fond of his current climbing digs.

    FYI - I had to order online as the store doesn't stock the black PVC. Unless you want white which is readily available at the store.

    Honestly I don't remember - I made a total of four and still have some pipe and fittings left over as I want to make a larger one for when I have them out of the enclosure to exercise on. Round numbers I probably spent around $200. Now as they get lager I'll probably buy/or build a cat tower for them to use as the 3/4" pvc won't hold outside the enclosures.


    I didn't use any pipe cement - they are just press fit so I can change the design if I get bored LOL
