Lightbulb Small Snakes?

I'm going to be building this come around July:



I was wondering about small snake species. It's only a square approx. 2' by 2' by 2'. Is there any kind of snake that could go into something that small?

I need about five different kinds. The sixth I'm most likely getting a Rose Haired Tarantula.

I would LOVE to get a Northern Red Bellied Snake. I think they're adorable, but I'm unsure if it's legal to have them here in ontario or not, so I'll check into that beforehand.

Thanks in Advance,
Jenn

Uhh, I think a cornsnake would fit in one, You might need to remove the divider thing when it gets bigger tho. Maybe not. Rosy Boa too prolly, i dont think they get too big. Those are SWEEEEEET!! Did it come with instructions on building?

Nopers, that's why I'm thankful to have two carpenters in the family and a good glass worker! *grins* After I build it I'll post the blueprints.

A Rosy would be perfect for that size area. Also any of the smaller Lampropeltis species like Pueblans, Grey Bands, a lot of the Mountain or tricolored Kings (which are really cool looking!), Corn snakes, I don't think Rough Green Snakes get too big and they are fairly active if I remember correctly...and cheap too!

Anyway, here's one question, Why not put some of that space you have going to height and use it for another row of cages? The reason I ask is, the height isn't really necessary and you could fit MORE herps in... which is a good thing!

Nice looking cages though...

I agree with Cranwill! More Height and a step stool maybe and there you go! An excuse for your parents on why to get more. "But mom! I have 3 empty cages!!!". I wish I had one of those rack things. Lol good luck on it.

*giggles* The reasoning is that I also want it as kind of a shelf thingy, put a row of books on the top of it or something that I'd like to be able to just grab. Don't worry though, I have lots of other enclosures in mind

Kenyan Sand Boas are rather small or a Western Hognose.

Hognose, children's python, viper boa are ones that haven't been mentionned yet. I would definitely get a hognose, they are adorable!

Yeah, ribbon snakes woudl work! A Chilean rose wouldn't work well in there (too much space!). If I were you, I would put in a 1.2 colony of emperor scorps, that would work well. That much space is a little big for someting as small as a rose hair. I would try a Lasiodora sp., most get 8+ inches, and the pink salmon eater gets up to 11" legspan (rivalling the T. Blondi, the biggest tarantula, I believe.) Are you sure you wouldn't like some lizards in there, too? lol
