Just curious, are you definite on that large of a cage for a BRB? You certainly can have a large cage, but you can also go smaller.

It is not so much that BRBs need alot of humidity. It is more that they need almost no evaporation going on. If you have evaporation, then you adjust humidity to compensate.

That said, racks are the easiest way to reduce evaporation w/o keeping the cage too moist. If you use a traditional cage, then a humidity box is the easiest way to provide localized humidity.

Anyway, Visions and Neodeshas are great! Without modifying, covering vents, etc, NPI cages hold heat and humidity better than Visions because of the properties of the plastic used. To keep Visions from evaporating moisture inside, covering some of the vented area will be necessary.

Both have high ship costs for 4ft plus cages. The 3ft Neo is actually not bad to ship. Is that too small for a BRB?

Also, one-piece molded cages are not the only cages that do not leak. I have Boaphile, and they do not leak. My boa spilled a large water bowl that I did not notice for 8 hrs, and no leakage at all. He heat-bends many of the seams, and the ones that are not bent are chemically welded together.
