Default Housing ideas

Ok at first I was going to plan on getting a typical 4x2x2 enclosure for the hog island, but after buying a ball and wanting a red tail Iím looking for the best idea to be cost and space efficient plus I plan on moving in a month or so, so I donít want nothing big to move. I plan on keeping the ball in a tub container for the time being since itís a baby and the Kenyan will leave happily where he is for the rest of his life.

Im going to Hamburg this weekend so I will be looking around for something or ideas for the near future, but can anyone chime in with some?

Paul Mitchell sells the enclosures I have (herpcages.com) I use the 48x24x12 with a divider in the middle ($250.00) made of abs plastic (white) and I love them. sold w/o heat! He will be on the rt side as you come in, the second row on the end. I am not sure where my table will be this time, I get moved around!

The $200.00 ones do not have the dividers! Paul usually has to order them in or I deal with Doug directly.

That's what these sites are about, learning from each others experience.

Denny it was a pleasure meeting you and your wife and tempting with your Red Tails, they were awesome and if you still had them when I got back they would have probably found their way back to my house

I did look around at the cages and really didnt see any that were big enough.
I will have to check them out when I go to another.
