Yup, good idea too!

As i said, any secure lidded plastic tub or box will be ideal make sure they can't push the lid up though!!

If you have nosy snakes like myself then bluetag doesn't help.. I can weigh down the probe using a very heavy waterbowl and hide and they still manage to kick it out.

You can easily attach the prob with a cable tie. Drill / burn / poke two small holes left and right of the probe and feed a cable tie through, closing it on the outside so no rough edges are inside of the rub (pressing the probe against the rub wall) ..

Here is what I mean using high professional MSPAINT techniques

you can also get different colour rubs. if you get a solid colour one with a clear lid, it helps them feel more secure as they cant seen out of the sides

this method is pretty much the same for most animals that dont need high humidity (eg leos, beardies, king snakes etc) just varies on the size of the animal for the box

You can also, if you cannot or dont want a solid colour sided one you can put black paper/card around the sides and that way you could put it on all except one side which will allow you to look in properly

I've found that my snakes dont seem bothered about the clear RUBs as they eat and shed fine in them I suppose it can be down to personal preference or the individual snake

I personally move them up bigger when they are a bit less than 2x longer than the long side
