Hello there I want to join in on breeding western hognose snakes, I have done all my research on rising, housing, breeding, and proper incubation. I almost have everything I need to start, I’m only missing the snakes themsevles, food (will get right before getting the snakes), and the snake rack. My problem is finding a heating snake rack big enough for hognoses can someone point me in the right direction to find one?
I have a CSerpents V-28 for the adults and an I-10 from Reptile Basics for the babies. Hogs are awesome and have been my favorite species to own, I hope you find them as enjoyable as I have. What morphs are you thinking on starting out with?
Thank you and I was thinking of starting with albino morph, I thought that is a good morph to start with.
Okay just looked at Reptile Basics and their racks are pick up only and my car won’t be able to survive the over 7 hour drive to their store.
Edit- Never mind I looked at the wrong category
Albinos are nice. Thats what my first clutch was, albino supercondas and condas. This year I will hopefully have axanthic and snows added to that.
I love both racks so far. The reptile basics one was a bit of a pain to put together at first until i got the hang of it. Helps if you have an extra pair of hands.
I save one of them so I can be notified for when they are in stock, what size bins do you use?
I use both, the I80 for little babies and I160 when they get bigger.
Okay found those on the site thank you for the information, I will come back ans share my first hognose I get.
I would love to see some pictures when you get your first. Can never have too many hoggie pictures!
Will do though I’m waiting to order the snakes until April so it’ll be less likely of being in a random snowstorm
It really depends on your preferences for racks. There’s so many different companies out there that make fantastic products. My only requirement was that the tubs be clear. I opted for with the ARS 5540 with polycarbonate tubs. PAC racks is another option. They make a very interesting modular system. You can have different sized tubs all in the same system.
Well some sad news, getting the snakes are on hold until i find a new place to live T-T.
