Re: Opinion on this rule of thumb for the size of a snake enclosure?

I suppose you are missing my point. If you build it as you propose itís dimensions would be about 430 x 210 150 cm (14 x 7 x 5 ft). How do you want to reach the back of your enclosure if it is 200 cm deep (wide)? Especially if there is another enclosure of the same size on top where you would probably have to step on a small ladder to reach in. I have a large enclosure for my Spilotes pullatus which is 250 x 90 x 190 cm (ca 8 x 3 x 6 ft), and even a three feed deep enclosure can be difficult to do maintenance in.
1,0 Lampropeltis triangulum campbelli, 1,2 Gonyosoma oxycephalum, 1,2 Philodryas baroni, 1,2 Spilotes pullatus, 2,1 Spilotes sulphureus, 0,1 Gonyosoma boulengeri, 1,1 Zamenis longissimus, 0,1 Malpolon sp., 1,1 Malpolon monspessulanus
