Thanks for the quick reaply. The vision cage I might get measures 24"W x 22"D x 14"H. How does that sound? That would give me more total floor space than the 12x36 you recommend, but is that important, or is have somelength to the cage more important (for stretching out maybe?)?

Thanks again,

:Congrats on getting a corn, but you better buy a few cages, they're extremely addicting! lol

:But I don't know the measurements of the visions, but a "normal sized" adult will do fine in a 20gal long tank, floor space is 12x36. So I would think anything with the same ammount of floor space would be fine. Just so you have enough room for a hide on both the warm and cool side and a nice sized water dish/pool for drinking and soaking. Corns are mostly terrestrial, so height is up to you. I personally like cages 8 to 12" high, but I know some go as low as 6".

:Have fun and be sure to post pics when you get the new addition.:)

::Hi everyone,

::I'm going to be getting a corn soon, and I just want to know in advance what size cage would be good for an adult corn snake? Would a vision #211 be a good size?

::Thanks,
