    Tub or repti view?

    So I have two pythons but both were older when I got them Iím getting another little girl in a couple of weeks sheís only a few month old so getting everything together my question do I put her in a tub for now or I have a repti view Viv that is 3 foot long and just fill with clutter for her? I know she will be needing a 4 foot plus tank when older this is just for now Pictures of both attached

    The Viv will be easy to heat but hard to maintain humidity. The tub will hard to heat and easy to maintain humidity. I'd go with option C: get a hognose snake instead. But seriously, if your ambient room temp is 75F or higher, I'd go with the tub. If not, I'd go with the viv, cover the screen top and add a humid hide.

    Homebody gave some pretty good points. The other one I will bring up is.... It can also depend on the snake's personality.

    If you decide to try the viv, have a tub on hand just in case. Some will stress out ALOT in an more open enclosure and just need that safer feeling tub. I only have 2 snakes that way right now thankfully. You just want to make the quarantine as stress free as possible as well. (in which case the tub may be easier to maintain until she passes quarantine)

    Thankyou! My house is about 60% humidity most of the time Iím in uk so itís getting colder here now but she will be away from others upstairs in my room for the first month which is actually pretty warm I would love to put her in the Viv but I donít want to stress her out in the same instance I also would much rather sheís in a viv canít win :/

    I have the tub and Viv just Iím very unsure when I held her at the pet shop she wasnít balled up or anything she was actually very curious at this point Iím going more with the idea of putting her in the tub for the first month and see then maybe the Viv depending on how sheís goes she will end up in the Viv as she grows and Iím already looking into getting a 4 2x2 as I donít know how fast she grow :0 haha
