    Made a snake tree!

    I used to keep parrots and I enjoyed having them hang out with me on parrot stands and trees. Since Noodle loves to climb I've been trying to come up with something for her but the parrot trees are very easy to get off of. I just ordered a cheap coat rack with smooth wood and then made it fun for her. She LOVES it!

    I put a basket on it with hidey leaves, an old stocking hat since she loves hiding in clothes, and the Christmas stocking that both snakes often stay in when on my lap watching TV. Also attached a branch to make it more tree like than the coat rack pegs.
    Of course they should always be supervised but it's nice to have some hands-free snake time in the livingroom too.

    The BP didn't dig it as much. He found the basket and just hung out there.

    Re: Made a snake tree!

    This is terrific! What an awesome idea! I also used to keep parrots and boy those large tree stands I bought for my macaw were expensive!! This looks like a very fun, and cost effective, method of ensuring a climbing workout for our slithery friends. Thanks for the great idea!

    I bought the coat rack for $20. I wish I had thought of this when I had the parrots and their expensive manzanita stands!

    Wow! You and me both. Thatís an amazing price! I think several years ago I paid $200-250 for a huge manzanita tree with a large wooden platform at the bottom for catching food/poop, etc. It was beautiful and I got it for cost. Almost wish I had hung onto it, but I will be making my own. Thanks for the inspiration!

    This is awesome! I've been wondering how I might be able to make a jungle gym for some of our snakes when they are bigger. Thanks for sharing!

    I'm thinking if you are able to, hanging braches from the ceiling might be good too. They won't be able to get off very easily
