Currently I have several reticulated pythons in 6x3 cages. In the next 5-6 months I plan to upgrade them to 10x4s (or maybe bigger).

I've always liked plated lizards and was wondering if a 6'x3x18" would be good for a group of maybe 1.2? I was thinking the good old Sudanese plateds...I'd have to install a light fixture or two. I was thinking 2-3 halogen floods and a 4' UV fixture installed inside the cage, coupled with rocks and a dirt/sand substrate? I've never kept plateds but what little I've found makes them seem fairly hardy...
