In Reply to: Arboreal cages for GTPs posted by deathstalker on February 18, 2003 at 23:35:13:

: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!

:Thank you,
