    I use pet food bowls from ikea. If your using a rack they are perfect, I use them for water bowls and hides. Because they are so large they cannot tip over in the rack. They have two sizes, one is perfect up to about 1900g and the small ones are good for hatchlings/young snakes. They are dirt cheap too..

    Another breeder actually gave me a few when I bought part of his collection. I figured out when I was cleaning them that they were from ikea so I picked up a ton of them. The small hatchling ones were on sale for 25 cents lol.

    Re: Hides, my way

    Thanks everyone! You were all a big help!

    I just brought home some cheap plastic cereal bowls. They're mostly dark but slightly transparent.. I'm not extremely worried as they will be in a dark room most of the time anyway.

    I agree with you Kat! When I cut up my cereal bowls I melted the edges with some flames. I was worried about getting anything that 'folds over' because I'm a freak about sharp edges with animals. D:

    Thanks again!

    Re: Hides, my way

    I used plain sandwich tupperware for my smaller BP's. I was cleaning a tub out and I put her in a spare that had one from my leopard geckos and she went right in. When I finished her tub, I put the container in and sure enough, she went right back in. I used a 1 1/2" hole-saw to cut the hole in the lid.
