:Basically, do emerald's require a bigger cage than a GTP? If so, why? I thought that adults for both species are about 6 feet.

I have raised both species in the exact same size cages from infancy to adulthood.

But in short, not really. Both will thrive in a 24x24x24 cage as adults. The general idea is bigger is sometimes better. Obviously, a 6 footer of either species will enjoy the more room of a longer cage.

It really depends on your available space. If you can afford a larger cage then I would do it. But if you are looking at housing multiple animals and space is an issue, than go with something @ 24x24x24 for adults. I have heard of breeders successfuly breeding them in a 20 gallon aquarium.
