    Feeding day for the Corn, Rat, and Milk. Enjoy...

    No Aspen was swallowed during feeding ;-)

    You have the most gorgeous snakes! Love them:x

    Those hides looks great, are they the same ones as these ones!

    Thanks! I really appreciate that.

    I make the hides myself. Appropriate sized bin, Krylon Fusion or Rustoleum Plastic spray paint, and a little time with heavy duty snips:




    As you can tell from the above pics, I cut these down as I felt they were too tall. I simply used my snips to cut around the ridge making them more cramped for the snakes.

    I allow them to cure for a week either in the sun or in a 10 gallon tank with a heat lamp during the day so the fumes dissipate.

    I love the look of the Reptile Basics hides, and the ones you linked, but didn't want to pay the price and shipping. Paint is about $4 a can, and the hide bins are around $1 each. I have made about 10 varying sized hides and still have some paint left after 2 to 3 coats for each hide.

    Smaller sized hides are made from sandwich storage containers - 3 for around $2.

    Anyone ever notice That a white water dish can scare a snake away from it?

    I have several white water dishes. The snakes could care less.
