The Zoo Med glass habitat should work. I have a small-ish Amazon myself. I currently have it in a 12x12x18 but will eventually be getting the 18x18x24 version. I’ve seen alot of ads for these snakes sitting inside the plastic containers but I’m not familiar with how that would work long term. For one thing, most plastic containers are not clear enough to see into very well and I defiinitely want my snake to be seen. The tall Reptarium cage from BigApple pet supply looks like a great size but it’s screened and not glass. These snakes require pretty high humidity so the screen sides most likely wouldn’t hold enough moisture (the plastic containers are great at holding moisture). I run a Zoo Med Reptifogger with my setup and the humidity stays right around 80% at all times. Hope this helps.
