Re: snakes in rubs

My boas live in under the bed storage containers. I love them because they are long wide and not that tall so they have about 5 feet long and about 3 feet wide to slither about. Plus they are easy to stack up and have wheels so you can move all the units as one. I have just your standard BCI morphs and they do great.

My male is only about 5 foot but my female is pushing 6 feet plus and they do great. Go with longer flatter rubs rather than the big storage ones. "Under the bed rubermaid/steralite storage containers" I use steralite- or however its spelled but rubbermaid has some nice ones as well. You just need to burn some holes in them. I heat up a thick nail and push it through, it melts the plastic and keeps the edges smooth. I use a nail as I dont have a soldering iron.

Re: snakes in rubs

As long as you set up the rub correctly and the proper size I can't see a reason why any python couldn't live in one.

Re: snakes in rubs

Would have been more efficient to make one thread asking for both boas and pythons Maybe a mod can merge the two?
