    I was thinking the same...wouldn't take long for a snake to destroy it, lol.

    Those cement mixing tubs are black at least- not gaudy. Should be easy to disguise or support.

    Only other thing I can think of- I used to have a huge plastic bathtub for bathing large dogs...it had a drain plug in the bottom too. About 40" long, about 16" deep...you
    might be able to find such a thing, but like the one I had was bright turquoise... Not exactly a natural look, lol. Mine was something like this:

    There's also laundry sinks... (those groomer tubs get pricey pretty fast!)

    You might also look around feed stores...the best ones have all sorts of big tubs for livestock, & all...tend to be less $ than "dog grooming" or human stuff.

    Any large container filled with water is going to be heavy though. If/when the snake poops in it that's going to be fun to bail out, unless you plan on using a sump pump to drain it?

    Wet/dry shop vac will empty it in two minutes. Heck, some small turtle ponds have filters run on batteries an even solar.

    Sweet...especially if those are what you're looking for-? I don't need anything that size, but I live in farm country & buy some things from feed stores so I know what
    they carry. Nice modeling, btw.

    Iím working on this same thing for my 150 gallon aquarium project. I bough a cheap rock waterfall off amazon. Iím gonna attach it to some heavy stones and place in a tub similar to a cement tub( I actually may use one of those they look perfect). Then just build more styrofoam facades around it.
