:Hey all,
:Im about to move into my new reptile room. But I need to be able to house as many herps as possable in a small space. So im looking at rubbermaids on shelfs for my colubrids. But I had a goni kingsnake get out of one a few weeks ago (I found him) and im worried that my two foot milk snake will do the same. My kings were 4 foot also, but I left one end of the rubbermaid unlatched. Well any help would be great!
:Thanks.
:Philip

As with any housing, SECURITY is a top priority. As you said with the goini. . .one side wasn't latched. . .the snake could have escaped from most any container that had an unsecured top. I use rubbermaids for some colubrids and have never had a problem. . .but I am very careful and sometimes triple check the locking mechanisms. Human error is a common occurance and where husbandry problems begin.

peace,
Ian
