    Box size vs. snake size

    Currently I have two box sizes on hand. 12x9x6 and 15x11x7.
    I was trying to figure out if a 1003g ball python, a 905g ball python, and a 1411g ball python, would fit comfortably in a 15x11x7.

    If not what size box would you recommend?

    Do you have specific weights and quantities you'd put in different sized boxes? (I'm looking to order more boxes and various sizes)

    I'm trying to figure out proper box size for different sized ball pythons, and how many can fit in each box if someone buys multiples.

    Thank you in advance.

    Get a 41-qt rack. Tub sizes above are all going to be too small for those snakes, except for something like short-term transport.

    For reference I ship two 2000 grams females in a 16x12x8

    Or one 2000 grams female and 3 juivies up to 200/250 grams.

    You don't want too big but you do not want too small either.

    They're asking about shipping, not enclosures.

    I really need to note which forum I'm in before replying.
