Cages Phase 1- sizes

I am starting to research my caging options. I want a wall unit type 2-3 units high so, thinking of some short and long term planning I wish to house the following;

1 Male and female BCI together year round (can I), if so what is the Ideal cage size,
If not what are the ideal seperate sizes?

2.Same as above but for ball pythons

3 Same for corn snakes

4 in addition i will have my leos in a set up

5 Giant german bearded dragons breeding pair (To Come), Does anyone know where I can optain them)

6 Black throat...Under controll so far, thanks to Dom

I really hope this make sense, (its clear as a bell inside my head)

Thanks
Brian

If you're asking if its ok to house snakes together, I'm sure the overwhelming response on this site is going to be "no".

At least I hope it is.

male and female bci I would go with the following. 6 feet long 3 feet wide 2 feet high.Build it once the snakes will grow into it and this will provide enough space for the largest of boas.Not to mention the money saved by doing this only once for each snake
my 2 cents, my Ideal sizes

Hip


ps keep em solo till breeding season is at hand and after the male looses intrest seperate again

I can try:

1) Bci cage size should be 4x2x1. They seem to thrive at this size of cage. Easy to build too (efficient use of wood).

2) Ball Pythons are good in 32" x 18" x 12".

3) Corns will do well in 32" x 18" x 6".

4) Leos will do well in just about anything.

5) Beardies? Haven't a clue. A quick search on the Internet will bring up a TON of sites with care sheets. A good portion of those should have minimum dimensions.

Good luck.

(sizes are in the order length x width x height).

I keep my beardies in 4x2x2 and it works well. you could also get away with 1-1.5' tall if you wanted.
