    Keeping ball pythons in iris Christmas bin?

    Those bins are the only ones that is large enough for an adult female so I want to give it a try. I have not seen any guide or anyone who keep BP in them. Will they work? Do anyone have any experience about them?

    They should be more than adequate; I know someone who kept a male boa in it for a while. I use them as transport tubs for my retics. I would put two large UTH's under it, one to create the hot spot, one at about 82*F, instead of trying to alter the lid to handle an overhead heat source.

    Also the lid is very long and it will flex so I would find a way to secure it to the tub halfway down each long side. Otherwise your snake may push its way out.

    If you want a slightly smaller tub that will still be adequate, Lowes and Home Depot carry Hefty and Sterilite tubs in the 100-160 quart range that would suffice.
