    What brand of hide is this?

    Hey all! First time BP owner and first time poster here. I received my adult ball python Luna from a friend, and was given all her supplies with her. The decor included one rock-style hide, which is the perfect size for her. She fits perfectly inside, seems comfortable and safe, and prefers it over any other hides I’ve gotten her so far.

    My problem is, I want to get a matching hide for the cool side of the tank, or at least one of the same size, so she doesn’t have to choose between comfort or temp. But I can’t seem to find any hides in stores that are the perfect size. I’ve gotten a few and they’re either too small and she doesn’t fit, or too big so that she’s not being hugged on all sides (which I hear is what they prefer?).

    Ideally I just want to get the exact same hide, but can’t find it anywhere. There’s no brand name on it and I haven’t found it on popular websites. I’ll attach a picture below. It’s about 11” long x 9” wide x 4” tall. Anyone know what it is? Could be roughly 5 years old.

    Would also be happy with rec’s for a same size hide that would fit a 4’ ball python comfortably and snugly. I just don’t want to buy a bunch of hides online without knowing they’re a good size, since shipping and returning is a pricey hassle.


    EDIT: Figuring out how to attach the photo. It didn't work like I thought it would!

    Wow, that took a lot of work and different methods just to upload a picture... But here we are! So this is the hide I'd love to find an exact match for if possible.

    That's a nice looking hide. I have to admit I assumed I'd know what kind it was before you posted the photo, but I have not seen that particular model before.

    Check e-bay. It looks like a lizard hide I saw there.

    Good luck!

    Sorry but I haven't any idea what that hide is either. This must be "stump the forum day"?

    Very unique and nice-looking hide! I tried a reverse image search on Google to look for photos that are similar but no hides like that came up so it seems that this is a very elusive and unusual model

    Might that have been designed for tropical fish, not reptiles? Maybe that's why we're not finding it? (searching wrong terms?)

    Yep. Looks almost certainly like aquarium decor

    For that reason, please be VERY cautious about using it as a hide for snakes. Some decor items made for aquarium use have very sharp unfinished edges or projections inside, because apparently they cause no issues for swimming fish, but when your snake crams himself inside, he's going to get cut up. Some of these items also have holes that a snake can get stuck in, & it would be very difficult & dangerous for the snake if you had to cut your snake free. Please check all decor carefully, & don't use if it's unsafe for snakes, no matter how cool you think something looks. I once came home with a castle-type decoration from a thrift store, with the intent of using it for a snake- UNTIL I found the safety issues inside. I donated it back- labeled for fish only.
