Hi guys... i have a young adult common boa 5ft in length and i keep it in the bed room. My room is not to wide but very long. I have approached a viv builder to build a new viv and he says after seeing my room he could make me a viv to fit in, and he give me the dimensions of 6ft long 15inches width and 3ft high he says this should be alright as long as i take it out plenty, and as it is lacking in width it is making it up in length and height and to put plenty of branches in with it does this sound alright to uses as he needs to know tomorrow if i want him to build it Thx .

you dont need a 6ft viv at all for a 5ft snake id say a 3ft viv but u wanna have a nice height as boas like to climb when figuring out the size of a viv i always half the snake and add half a ft alot of pple jus say half the size of the snake but i like to allow for a little extra room to fill it up with plants and decoration
