depends on the species and whether there are any illnesses etc or natural stress from being wild caught etc.
Usually low traffic areas work the best for all, in keeping stress down, especially if they don't need extra stress from all the humans being around and moving a lot.
It is a good idea to have a quarentine area, away from all the others for new arrivals and ill or suspected ill herps.
If there are other pets in the dwelling, then it may be bestto have them in their own room, so that curious kitties and rambunxiuous puppies won't have a chance to do any damage, such as stressing them or knocking over the setups.
A room to themselves, with a lockable door , or away from other pets is also a good idea if you have an escape artist, to lessen the odds of the other pets harming or just outright eating it.
