In Reply to: is melamine safe? posted by lizzie on November 12, 2002 at 09:48:24:

Many people use melamine for snakes enclosures (myself included). The temps at which our snakes are kept isn't high enough to cause any problems.

The only concern I'd have is housing a relatively high humidity snake in a melamine cage. Even though it has a water resitant covering, if water seaps in it will warp and swell. We only use it for our redtail boas, and seal all joints, holes, cuts with silicone aquarium sealant.

For GTPs (and ETBs) I'd recommend a cage made of high impact, light weight plastic such as are available from Vision, Boaphile cages, etc.

:ive read that melamine, if heated to a certain temp., can release formaldahyde in toxic levels. how far is this true? and if this is true why the heck are people selling cages made from this material? best regards to all.-darren leavitt
