Hi. I wanted to get peoples possitions on how many snakes per size cage I can have. (adverage garter/ribbon)
I am thinking of custom cages to so...
how large a cage gal and sq foot for 2 snakes?
Keep in mind that there will be branches and rocks and stuff like that that they can go up as well.
I should also mention this... right now I keep two adult garters in a 20gal. When I first got the cage... the SLIDE IN screen was not strong enough to hold the weight of my cats and eventually tore. I bought a 20gal screen from a shop... one size fits all... but it went over the top... not slide in... leaveing enough of a gap for a snake to escape SO I use both tops.
As a result these snakes LOVE getting between the screens (there is plenty of room) and hardly spend time accutally IN the cage.
I mention this because it doesn't seem like they like to "roam" alot and may need less room then I first thought when I started getting snakes.
Thanks for your help
PS this will determine how many I can add to my collection.
