    Re: Cage size

    I currectly have all but my two quarantine bps in 30x32x12 plastic cages - a couple of 8x30x12 cages divided into 3 units each. Im planning to revamp my cage setup next year, if all goes well, and replace the large 8 cages with individual 36x24x12 pvc cages. The shallower depth will be easier for me to clean since they seem to prefer to do their business in the furthest corner that I cant reach.

    For a few of my larger snakes, Im considering 48x24x12 pvc cages just to give them extra room. The route Im going is more expensive, but I like being able to look into the cages and like to give them as much space as reasonably possible. They will do well in tubs and smaller enclosures than I plan, but this is just my preference.

    Re: Cage size

    Well stated by both so far.

    48x24x12 or 15 for an adult female

    ....or 36x24x12 or 15 for an adult male

    Animals Plastics or Reptile Basics is worth a look.
