    I have a vision cage that is 24" wide 22" deep 14" high, that is not currently being used, I am thinking now that Mamba my Cali Kingsnake is getting bigger I will mover her out of the exoterra 12x12x18 tank that I have used since I got her when she was 2mths old, she is now 5 mths and growing rapidly.
    Question....will the vision cage be big enough for her forever home? or should I get something bigger?
    I have a small pac-man frog, smaller than a quarter. Would he do fine in the exoterra?

    The pacman will do OK in the exoterra for a while, but will eventually need an upgrade to at least a 15 gallon.

    Yeah, when they are babies, that small size is just dandy. :)

    ok so I got tanks switched around and both animals in their new homes, hopefully happily :) here are some pics,
    they are self explanitory, Mamba being a lavender albino desert kingsnake and Engleburt Humperdink is the Pac-man frog
    Should I remove some of the plastic plants from Engleburts cage? I wanted him to feel secure, as up until now he has only had a few leaves and a small amount of spagnum moss to hide in.
    Mamba seems to be enjoying her new found space, especially the jungle vine I swear she thinks she's a tree boa LOL this is her first time with aspen, up until now she has been on papertowel, I still might take her out for feedings and put her in a box.

    No sphagnum moss for froggies! It's a choking hazard. The plastic plants are just fine. Queso loves hiding under bits of pothos. Does your froggie not have coco-husk to bury in? Give him just enough so he can get himself mostly buried. You will find he thanks you for that. :)

    You may want to eventually go slightly larger for the snake, but honestly, that's a pretty good enclosure size as is. I just wouldn't go smaller than that.

    My milk is due for an upgrade here soon.
