    Really?? Those are a lot cheaper than the exact ones, from the exact same places by my house

    I use the cat litter pans with my two biguns. They love em, and it fits perfectly on one end of my rack system

    I can't seem to find those Zilla hides anywhere, do they still sell those?

And no, you should not burn the edge and put it back in the cage immediately, let it cool. I'll try and get a pic up later.

    Another tip for people along the same lines: Soldering irons are great for cutting plastic. Just do it somewhere ventilated, burning plastic should not be inhaled.

    These are great hides, and reasonably priced. Better than Zillia IMO

    I use drawer organizers out of the kitchen wear department in Wal Mart for my babies/juvies. they are about a buck a piece. Anything bigger I use litter boxes that Wal Mart sells for about a buck twenty. They have three sizes I believe.

    Re: Hides, my way

    You guys are going to laugh, but I use the plastic coffee cans they just came out with...Washed them good to get the smell out and then cut them in half so that I have two hides with one can.

    Re: Hides, my way

    I get my hides at the hardware store!

    They're PVC LB Access fittings, you find them in the electrical aisle. They have sizes from teeny wiggleworm to huge fat BP (but the biggest size is special order... and kind of expensive!)



    in the picture it's "upside down". Take off that screw-on panel and put it down in the cage. I find my snake enjoys entering/exiting through both top and bottom at times... sometimes he comes out the top and goes in the bottom!

    I thought i was the only one using cardboard. They also love the paper towel rolls, chrismas paper wraping rolls, and newspaper rolls. My 4 ft BP chooses the rolls over her hides. She will also rock the whole tube with her tail, while most of her body is inside the tube.
