I really liked the info/pics in this series of posts.

I have always used nesting boxes and never had issues, but it is obvious that this is just a better way of doing it for the animal as it closely mimics what is natural for them to do.

I have 3 55gal aquariums that used to be turtle tanks that I think will now become massive nesting enclosures. I may even set up the big nesting enclosure and put a nesting box in there too just as an experiment to see the animal choose a more natural method over the man-created box.

I also found the part about kings communal nesting interesting. I've seen pics of rat snake nests, and seen for myself a communal nest for at least 3 bull snakes (41 eggs)under a giant stack of hay bales and i've also seen communal nest for fence lizards (57 eggs!!!! no clue how many females it took)under a stump I pulled up in my yard.

now for a question. what species have you used this method for?
