We keep most of our Breeders in the functional setups. The Quarantine room all has functional setups. Only the display cages have the natural setups.

Any of the "old timers" here will know my answer. I'm an absolute zealot about natural cages. My philosophy is if you are going to take the animal out of it's home, then make its cage as home-like as possible. It's totally unfair to your critter to keep it in a bleak, sterile, plastic (figuratively, not literally) environment just because it's more convenient for you. Not trying to condemn here .. just my opinion.

Well, I clean my simple setups naked. So where does that put me?

Well Jeff, now I'm afraid to ask just what you use to clean them.

We now have 40 pythons, all of these being in a realistic encolsures, cleaning is ......just cleaning, it may take a bit longer but well worth it.
our beardies however, still only have newspaper as a substrate though again, they have real branches, and fake plants, our true climbers, have digerridoos with dowel that has been butted, sort of like the exercise thread, all the leaves are fake, and are drilled into tiny holes, so the snakes can't knock them loose,and they seem to really appreciate it!!!!!!!!!

Naturalistic enclosures are extremely difficult to maintain when you own a variety of herps. I've always tried to keep my setups natural, but i get quite paranoid. Using dirt instead of paper toils/newsprint worries me as you cannot completely clean up the defecation. If a chunk of cork bark is defecated on I scrub it then soak it.. So all the work just adds up, when ultimatly i could just replace the cork with cardboard and throw it out when it becomes soiled. ughhh! but its so ugly. Iam still quite undecided on this matter. heheheh

Do plants (real or fake) make for a happier snake? All my tanks have a hidey-hole, some stick (plastic or grapevine) to crawl on, a ceramic water bowl to splash around in, and the occasional ceramic dinosaur to make my baby snakes look extra big and threatening. I am about to shift everyone into larger tanks, should I plan on introducing foliage to them?
