The divider is a nice touch, but most likely your snake wonít cooperate, it will of course be at the dirty side and will stay there, especially if you are in a hurry. And of course the points IDvsEGO raised, donít underestimate the weight of an enclosure of this size.
Alright. Thanks for bringing some insightful feedback on my idea here. I appreciate it.
