    2 way enclosure.

    What Dimensions would I need for a Adult Jungle Carpet Enclosure and Adult Spotted Python enclosure. I will be putting the Jungle in the first bay, The spotted python in the second bay. . How much do you think it will cost all up ? As I'm wanting to get rid of my 2 separate enclosures, Just make 2 way enclosure. So Then There will be more room, Easy to transport.

    That's pretty huge for a Mac. It would be fine in half that but if you've got the space, might as well take advantage of it.
    I personally prefer melamine for fully DIY enclosures but lots of people also use plywood. It's cheaper and lighter but needs to be sealed to make it water resistant.
    Materials shouldn't cost you more than about $150-$200 tops but that's without heating and electrical equipment.

    Spotted should only need an enclosure 90cm long, 60 cm high and 60cm deep and for the jungle you could get away with something 90cm long, 1.2m high and 60 cm deep...
