This brings up the question of WHY? Why don't you purchase some quality cages? Don't you realize that what you are doing is irresponsible? Don't you understand that the animals you keep could be injured in their attempts to escape? Or once they do escape they could be injured or killed? Next time, instead of buying another animal to house in a less than appropriate enclosure, buy a new cage with a secure top instead!

: I've been keeping reptiles for three years and in that time I learned that almost every day a reptile tries to give you a heart attack. Yesterday I had a kingsnake get lose and it ended up on my computer desk and as I reached over to get a piece of paper and it struck and bit me from behind my computer.But today........I walked into my reptile/computer room and looked into my peach phase het. Albino Dwarf female fattailed gecko's cage and there i saw one of my female albino California kingsnakes coiled around what i thought was my geckos head....My first thought was my favorite gecko is dead; now is a good time i mention she has one of those tails that looks EXACTLEY like her head....well anyways i picked up the kingsnake and uncoiled her and out fell my geckos tail I was sooooooo RELEIVED to see it was her tail not her head...so i turned over her favorite hide box and there she was scared to death. So now my baby girl is in a completely differnet cage and it has a top and it is locked...as for the king. she has 4 locks and 8 bungie cords on her cage.
