Coastal Carpet Question

I know that coastal carpets can grow quite a bit larger than other subspecies, so obviously they would need a larger cage, but I can’t find any info on the specific size of cage. Anyone got anything on coastal carpet caging?

The more space you give them, the more they’ll use, but they can thrive in any reasonably sized setup. Coastal’s do get slightly larger but if fed correctly won’t be as big as they sound on paper. They can be grown pretty big, but it shortens their lifespan quite a bit.

This is a 4 year old male Caramel Coastal in a 40 gallon screen top.


As Don notes, what you read on paper is often not fully accurate to reality. On paper, humans can get to over 2.13m, but how may Yao Mings or Andre the Giants do you see?

A 120cm x 60cm x 60cm cage is fine for most, but if you give them more room, they will certainly take advantage of it
