My husband and I have kept snakes for several years now and would like to tackle breeding this season. We have 7 snakes and 2 geckos and each are in individual cages all over the house. We REALLY need to get some kind of compound cage system set up but when we look at our options we have lots of questions and we need an experienced friend's advice! What do you suggest for a stable, heated, stack-able compound? Also, we've noticed that breeders often use smaller cages than we've seen recommended for pets. How do you figure if a snake is too big for a tote? What is necessary to provide for these totes? Is a water bowl and a single hide enough? Where does the breeding world overlap with the ethics of it all? We've had people get on our case for even asking these kinds of questions so I'm a little nervous. We are just reptile lovers and need to find a better way to house them all in a single room... Any websites, additional forums, or helpful info you may be able to provide would be very appreciated. How did you get started?
