Well, there is no one correct answer. A lot depends on how many you are keeping, if you are breeding, is space a concern etc. etc. and of course budget is always a concern.


I prefer cages for adults that are breeding. So much easier to look into the cage and see if there is cleaning required. Also I don't want to have to pull a tub and make the earth move to check to see what the pair is doing. Of course cages tend to take up more space. Size is minimum 2' x 2' x 18" That is for one adult. Better would be 3' x 2' x 18" I also have some in 11" tall cages but that eliminates vertical arrangement of cage furnishing. Some of my cages I built myself, others I bought from boaphileplastics.com Some that more asthetic (and of course more pricey) are Showcasecages.com One other supplier that comes to mind is Animalplastics.com All three have various size cages and options.

For heating in a cage I really like Radiant Heat Panels controlled by Herpstat thermostats. They make a four channel one that works great.

If you want tubs, Animal plastics can make a tub rack for Iris CB110 tubs. I don't think it's on their website but I had them make four ten high racks for me several years back.
