Some keepers house small snakes in large cages while others keep large snakes in moderate size cages. I have raised snakes for years in moderate size cages with no ill effects. Most of the time snakes are coiled up. Also the snake gets to stretch out when taken out. What is important is the cage needs to be large enough to provide a hot spot on one side and a cool zone on the other so the snake can choose its comfort zone at the time. A 36x18x24 tank can house a male boa. Feeding schedule and subspecies/locale will influence size. Bill
