    Hello! I'm planning on getting my first big python, i plan on starting with a male burmese python as reading around they seem to be the most docile and most forgiving larger snakes. I've had plenty of experience with larger snakes volunteering at reptile shops and being around other large...

    Hi - hope im posting this in the right place. I have a 2 year old leo and about 7 months ago I moved her from her exo terra viv (45 cube) into a bigger viv which is 86x37.5x16.5cm (34x15x16.5inch) to give her more space. The temps in the new one are still the same as the old one (32 on the hot...

    Just doing a little research and was wondering about housing for young Burmese pythons. What size viv can they go into when young, do they prefer small and work up in size? A RUB then into a viv? Straight into a big viv?

    I'm really starting to run out of space for my snakes, so trying to think up a rub rack/viv stack idea. Basically I'm planning on building 3 vivs with a rub rack on top, and not to go into the finer details, the vivs would be 48(l)x32(d)x15(h)". The height is not set in stone. The vivs would...

    Hey, I have had my basilisks for a while and I am now looking to get some sort of medium sized monitor since their care requirements are apparently a little bit similar (except a much more voracious temper and apetite from a monitor). So I'm looking to get some sort of medium sized monitor, my...

    I'm interested in getting one of a Ornate/Honduran Wood or a Chinese Box turtle and am currently considering the size of setup that I could initially give. I think that I could provide a 3 by 3.5 vivarium for one adult which I believe would be big enough, given everything I've read. For those...

    What is the maximum size vivarium a bearded dragon can have? Over the summer I want to build a 4" x 2" x 3" (length x depth x height) and I was wondering if it would be too high?
