Thanks FR, you're more useful than the internet or books

Okay so what do you think if I connected two airtight shower/bath stalls with duct tubing.

One could house the pool, with varied level perches so they could pick their temperature, then the other could house tunneling substrate at the bottom, with the same configuration of varied level perches ascending. So essentially one of their "rooms" would be wetter than the other, and both would have varied temperature.

Once they got bigger, they could certainly have a 12 x 12 enclosure within a room.

I wonder has anyone experimented with "hamster tube" setups, where a bunch of enclosures are connected together via ducts that the monitors can explore. Although it's possible to set up a room size enclosure in three rooms of this house, that will not damage the house, setups that are not a variation on the cube would be easier to set up for people without the kind of space I have, and may offer a better quality of life for the reptile.



JME - it would be unfortunate if they didn't get along, but in that case, I would just give them separate enclosures. In your experience, have you seen a lot of Niles fighting?
