    Hey everyone, I have a spare 3 foot enclosure that I want to use. I was wondering if there was anything except the Antaresia group that would do ok in it?

    Thanks, Tim

    People keep quite large carpet pythons in tubs so you should be able to keep some sort of carpet python in there. Maybe a jungle.

    I know they get kept in big tubs for breeding purposes only, but want something for private

    I'm private and I keep a 6 year old spotted in a 70 litre tub, they aren't cows they don't graze. It may not be ideal but it's better having a smaller well heated enclosure than a poorly heated large enclosure I feel.
    It's all about the equilibrium of husbandry, obviously we can't recreate the wild in our loungerooms/herp rooms so we do the best we can, whilst still providing the best husbandry possible.
