Looking super nice and green!

So, I am getting ready to move Sherbet into her new enclosure. I have had success with moving boas into their adult enclosures if I give them enough coverage and they are consistent/confident eaters. Additionally to reduce their potential stress, I also keep the lights off and only use room lights during this time. So here is a quick shot of all the enclosures stacked lol :joy:.

The enclosures are T8s (4x2x1) from animal plastics. The plastic plastics are made by Bloom. I get mine from Joann Fabrics or Hobby Lobby, just make sure that the ones you pick don’t have glitter. I haven’t had any issues with color running. I sterilize them by keeping them submerged in super hot tap water for several minutes and then using a Dawn dish soap mixture, and rinse and let dry before using them again.

Ok thank you! They look like enclosures one would see in a fancy reptile exhibit in a zoo! Beautiful job! I am “green” with envy! Lol

Nice looking enclosures @lumpy :+1:
I’m sure Sherbet will adjust quickly.
Hope to see photos when she’s settled in.

Looks really good. If you haven’t, you should do a YouTube video on the process.

Looks great dude! Always love seeing your boas. I have my main Colombian in a 4x2x2 as he will be my largest by far (even over my female Sonorans) but got Ecoflex over AP cages just for slight reduced cost and, moreso, shipping time. Next time I need an extra large enclosure AP or Reptile Habitats that Dubia carries now seems good for very inexpensive.

If you want another way to disinfect the fake plants faster (or anything else) diluted chlorhexidine is amazing and non toxic. I spray my whole house with it lol.

@lumpy what substrate do you use for your boas? Also what size enclosure do you use?

4 Likes

I see you @baby_yoda :wink:. Right now I use Reptichip for substrate. And for cages right now, the plan is to keep everybody in T8s ( 4x2x1 ) from Animal Plastics besides for larger females. I like to be able to see everybody, but maybe as I get larger, my breeding males might go into equivalent size rack systems, but I doubt this highly due to my preference. Kai is in a T10 though ( 4’x2’x15” ) because I bought it thinking that I was going to only have one snake for a while lol :joy:. Due to Kai being a pet only, I might end up buying him a 6 foot and putting Leaky in his current as they’ll be out in my living room when I am older.
