I think the key is, do not think in the restrictive mode of cage systems. They are all build for the average non thinking human. I do not know of any that WORK for the animal.

Whats important to understand, there were no cages other then glass fish tanks, when I was young. All good snake keepers made their own cages.

In fact, the best most successful early keepers, had building skills. We build what was needed, or precieved to be needed.

We did not try to make any reptile fit into something already restrictive.

Most commercial cages do two things, they address convenience or looks, but do not put together those plus the needs of the animal. Best wishes
