I currently use 2 foot Neodesha sliding front cages for my females and 18 x 24 inch plastic sweaters for my males. I like the sliding front cages for the females so I can make sure they breed when I introduce the males into their cage. I use Neodesha's since it is what I originally bought 20 years ago and so far they work fine. Problem is I need more cages and I am maxed out with no more room for Neodesha's and they went out of business. I am thinking of going to all plastic sweater boxes since they can stack and are lighter and it will increase the number off animals I can keep and get all of them higher up in the room since the older I get the less I like bending over with some cages 1-2 feet off the floor. My back isn't what it use to be. I figure I can house alot of snakes with them being 3-5 1/2 feet off the floor if I go to the sweater box system.
MY QUESTION: Those of you using the stacking plastic rack systems, how do you like them as far as introducing pairs and making sure they actually hook up since you can't see into them easily. Any problems in this area? My current plastic sweaters are from KMART and are Martha Stewarts with clear sides but semi clear tops. Thanks , HDEAN
