I have yearlings in similar size vivs and they are doing fine, just make sure there are a couple of hides, I also have vine in mine as well. But looks a perfect size. :wink:

Mine are 36 x 18 x 18 Vivs and I currently house all my corns seperatley my biggest 5ft male to my yearlings all have same size vivs, all my hatchlings are in faunariums. Eventually I will have some same sex living in pairs thats why I went for the size of viv build. I would probably have something a little wider personally but thats me. I think it would be a good size and you shouldnt have to upgrade.

ok cheers, aye , i would like to get it a little wider aswell but im a bit limited for space and thats the only size they do it in that would fit.

Also one more question :D , will i need to get a bigger heatmat for that size viv, my mat just now is 5 inch wide 10inch long?

Looks fine for a yearling but may need something bigger eventually - depends how big it grows.

For this viv you could get a piece of melamine - say 18"x10" - and put a shelf in there. it'd increase the floor space by about 40% and encourage him to climb - probably giving him more excercise than he'd get in a slightly larger viv anyway.

You could get away with that heat mat - but 11x11 mat would be better - you'll definitely need a stat though if you don't already have one.
Don't forget to cover the mat with something (eg. a large tile) to lessen the possibility of burns. Also a good idea so seal up the terminal block with low-tack insulating tape or silicone sealant so that moisture can't get to the electrics.

it says they are sliding glass doors,roughly the same size as corn viv,i might need a bigger one if the corn grows freakishly large

Cool. If you get it, tell me if it's any good. Still thinking of building one for mine, but not sure yet.

Viv

36 " is a too big for a yearling unless you provide plentr of hides

good luck with your snake

I used to house all my adults in 36x15x15 without any problems.The only reason i changed it was i had so many corns that to keep them in vivs would have taken up the whole house let alone the one room i have.


That size viv would be ample room for a 6 foot corn and you could also put in an opposite sex for short periods of time for breeding perposes
