>>Here are some photos of a water enclosure system that works well for me. Iíve attached a cover to a vision tub, added a drain to the tub, and created a rack with caster wheels so that it is mobile. It is heated with heat tape. The tub is separate from the animalís enclosure which provides me complete access for maintenance. The key is having an available floor drain for ease in draining. Basically, I just need to pull a plug, strain out the big stuff, scrub, disinfect, and rinse. I use this tub to soak all my large snakes, but it is my green that really seems to enjoy it. When I enter the snake room she starts pacing her cage until I open the door and allow her to crawl in the tub. A by- product of this routine is that I do need to run her back up into her enclosure. I feel that this regular handling will keep her manageable as she continues to grow.
>>Please Note: After reading Kellyís and Shaneís concerns regarding water availability for greens I established a few simple rules: 1) Donít soak animals unless I know I will have the time to clean if there is a mess. 2) Donít soak the green if she has recently eaten. These rules have basically eliminated fecal soup situations. I hope that others can use this simple design.
>>Please excuse the sub- par photos. I think I had too much coffee.
