I think this post should have been in a specific forum. Snakes are usually kept in simple enclosures, and lizards and amphibians are usually kept in natural enclosures. You can kind of see the differences of opinions variate between snake keepers and lizard keepers.

i personally olny use natural, I wouldnt want a pet that just lived in a rubbermaid and the olny time I saw it was when i was cleaning its cage, BUT on the other hand if i was breeding bp's or any other snake for that matter it would be to impractical to have a natural setup for two dozen snakes. To sum it up I personally think its what the animal is for, breeding or pet. I keep lizards and frogs though, so I dont really know what is best for snakes.

I think natural nice to look at set ups are for the keeper not the kept.
However, like most said you meet the animals needs and the animals need will determine what the cage looks like.
In my snake room all the cages are newspaper/plastic hide box set ups. In the livingroom though I keep one natural cage for my Amazon because I think arboreal snakes look best in a "natural" set up. Also when non-herpers come to visit my snakes they are expecting my room to look like the same displays they've seen at a zoo so also for that reason I keep the natural set up in the livingroom.

I wasnt implying that people who go the easy route, are all lazy...just stating that "lazy people" shouldnt own animals, that goes for dogs/cats to not just reptiles, but to tell you the truth, the only reason why i have natural set-ups is because i beleive it makes for a happier, healthier animal, now do keep in mind, thats MY beleif, and im entitled to it, and will continue to keep my reptiles in as natural a setting as possible, yes it's more expensive, but my eyes if i wasn't willing to provide the best for my animals...i wouldn't have gotten them int he first place...but thats just me

I just do whatever is best for the animal...such as my savannah monitor for example. I COULD keep it on paper towl and make my life a little easier, i think, but it is better for them to be on dirt so i do it. My geckos live a longer life on towel paper so i use it, etc. I just go for health first...
