Hello. My name is T.J., and I am from MA. Very soon I will be pursuing to obtain a pair of GTPs (of any race) or (Surinam/Guyana) ETBs and just wanted to know what you all think are the best arboreal cages for these snakes: Vision, homemade, etc., and what is--or are--the best type(s) of wood to use for horizontal branching (e.g., driftwood, grape wood, manzanita, etc.)?
On the Vision cages, is the arboreal model V222 really suitable for an adult GTP, or even a pair? (I understand it is preferable that pairs be kept separate for best breeding results.) I suppose it's perfect in every aspect and need except that by the book, Tree Boas and Tree Pythons, by Tom Mazorlig(?), the cage should be a minimum of 2/2/4 ft (W/D/H), and the V222 is only 28/24/24 in. (W/D/H). Is this still suitable for at least one specimen of a GTP? Or how about the V433 model for a pair, or at least one? And on the Vision cages, how do you make, or stabalize, horizontal branches? (Remember to suggest the best type(s) of wood! :)
If any of you have better suggestions for cage choice, though, please share...it will be greatly appreciated!
