    Well with the recent happenings in Canada I stepped it up and put a real lock on my chondro room door with my wife insisting. Aside forn this on a more positive note I've been working on my chondro room and decided to provide enrichment for them. Whenever I clean I need a place to put them so I came up with something that allows them to move around more and makes for awesome viewing on my end :) I plan to rotate them all through this set up and I'm sure from the reactions today that at some point I'll get tagged for my troubles. It's just two horizontal bars and one vertical. It allows them to actually climb and then chose where they want to go. Think it's working well for me though and them for excercise. Also note on the one corner I've picked up two of the new tubs that I intend to use as enclosures. Pics of that will follow in the near future. Any feed back is appreciated and or comments. Thanks!

    I love the idea. Getting them down from that seems like it might be a pain though, especially if they don't want to come down and start getting nippy.

    Thanks gents! Actually getting them down has been easy. The center rod is removable so when I'm ready I'll place it as the highest branch and touch them enough to get them to move. they climb right up and then I move them back into their enclosures ;) they always look for the high ground so it's easy.

    Well Frank it's hard to miss a chondro when they're hanging down in strike mode (I hope) ;) I did however have some interesting conversations about stimulating snakes and their behavior. Some studies have shown it to be a positive thing so I have a female that is not eating at all and she will be my test subject. I'll rotate her through the "gym" regularly and see if she will come around sooner. If it works it may be something to really look into but we'll see

    Interesting! I like your idea so much that I am drawing up a complete "grape vine arbor" type of concept to hang from my ceiling the entire size of my snake room.
