Don't forgot the thermostat!!!!.
To be fair, a similar sized RUB is only a few pounds more expensive, and you don't need to crack open the sticky tape every time you open it. Just sayin'

50L RUB is £15 in Argos, not checked other sizes specifically but smaller will be cheaper, 50L is a bit much for a hatchling corn, i'd prefer a viv

Ah you mentioned a 42L one though Corns aren't really like other snakes where you have to wrap them in cotton wool, mine eats anything and everything he can, doesn't mind being handled, nothing fazes him.

These are the ones: ASDA 42 Litre Underbed Plastic Storage Box and Lid - Clear | Plastic Storage | ASDA direct

They are around 2.5 foot x 1.5 foot which I think is ok for a snake upto 4ft MAX.
Therefore, smaller adults may be well suited for this size of tub.

Yep that's the one lol except i cracked mine which is why i had to grab one from the range lol exact same make just more expensive lol, it's 32 inchs long so 4inchs of 3foot but they hold the heat well mine at the moment is at 28.6C and ranges up to 29.8 down to 26.8C depending on whether i open the window or put the radiator on LOL.

I've never done so wasn't aware there weren't any big enough, just meant that a faunarium style enclosure would be suitable if it were big enough.
