Default Ball python breeding in Vivs???

Hi Guys.
If you ignore the space saving aspect of a rack what are your thoughts on breeding royals in vivs? Pro's & cons.

Does anyone do it already?

No real cons for in viv if your snakes are well settled!

Given the way the males chase the females, having the space to do so in a VIV is beneficial. - I've bread two of my adult females in their vivs without any issues. They go on to lay decent clutches.

The rack/rub/tub/viv debate will go on for ages, but personally I keep all my snakes in vivs apart from hatchlings that spend their first 3-6 months in a rack prior to selling or being moved into vivs
