 What reptile?

Hey,

I have a 6ft x 2ft x 3ft cage at home with nothing in it. It can stay vertical or go on its side but im not sure what animals would suit a cage like that.

So if anyone has any ideas what would do well in that (anything except a chameleon)?

Cheers

I believe that is a good cage size for pythons and boas since they tend to get quite large. I have a 5ft Red Tail Boa and I’m in the process of of building a cage that’s 5x2x3. What you should consider now is what’s in the cage. Pythons like to climb so some branches and things of that sort would be good. Boas mainly like to burrow most of the time but they will climb occasionally if it’s available so a lot of substrate is good for them. I’ve owned pythons, corns, and boas and personally boas are my favorite. You can’t go wrong with a Red Tail....I know quite a bit about them so if you have any questions feel free to ask.

A medium sized monitor? That’s the min cage size for mangroves, peachthroats, and dumerils.
