Cb70

Scored a VE-CB70 rack from a friend. Are there any dwarf boas that you can keep happily in these tubs or do they all require at least a 4x2 cage?

Re: Cb70

My boas will go in a minimum 4x2s or 6x2s as adults. I think even the dwarf species will need at least a 4x2. I believe the CB70 tub is only 33x18x5. I don't think an adult boa would be very comfortable in a tub that size.

I understand the addiction now

I just barely got my BCI. Can't turn down a friend so I had to help, hahaha. So what adults can stay in a CB70 for life besides balls and corns? I'm not really rushing to getting more snakes as I'm still learning but I have an extra rack so "thinking" ahead.

Re: Cb70

A king snake would fit nicely in that tub. Very fun snakes too.

I was looking at them too actually. As beautiful Ball pythons are, I'm pretty sure the feeding strikes will make me too uneasy.

Re: Cb70

My king may just be an outlier, but I don't see him being happy with only 6" height. His enclosure is 24" tall. He uses every inch of that height and seemingly would be happy for more. Perhaps there are king species that are happier on the ground 24/7. To be sure, he spends time in his holds, but he also hangs out on his perches a lot. He's yet to perfect the lovely GTP "coils draped oh so perfectly" look, but has made a few clumsy, colubrid attempts at it. lol

Re: Cb70

Ok so corns, milks and kings can live in CB70s. Any pythons other than balls? Hognose?
