Proper sized vivariums are best bet, Im sure under the new laws certain size racks are against the rules?

Please tell me you mean a vivarium rack? The idea of an adult female boa in a tub for the rest of its life makes me feel sick to my stomach!

I really do hope the new laws do in fact go against keeping large snakes in plastic rubs!

The legislation only applies to commercial activity, not private keepers.

Second hand pro-racks (jumbo) or the vision boa racks would be your best bet but they are expensive and donít come up often.
