 So i need some tips

So the expo is in jan, already have a cage for my RTB, definatly getting my first morph, and been obsessed with carpets for about a month, so what a good species that can fit in a tub, say a 72 qut, not pressed for money but for space, I’ve heard and read differant science names for them, but not common names, so what a tub friendly species, saw the ap cages, and pvc stackable and don’t wanna pay that much, but will if i have to, also the ones i’ve seen are quite high. i’ve seen brian keep his in tubs on the snake bytes, and if i decide to get one he will be out of his cages several hours a day

You’re planning on keeping your snakes out of their cages for hours a day?
I would really not recommend that... since we keep our animals in cages to keep them safe and their husbandry right. I don’t know where you are but where I am it is awfully cold and it’s a little tough to keep the house warm... especially during hard economic times.

Pretty much any snake can be kept in a tub. All of my babies and sub adults are in tubs, the rest are in plastic boaphile cages. I have a Morelia Bredli (Centralian carpet python) and I kept him in a sterilite tub until he grew to be five foot, then I moved him into a 4X2 boaphile.

Sorry for my ramble lol.

Mate i don’t know the dimensions of a "72 qut", but if you have the space to build up as in a tall enclosure. There are species of carpets that are more aboreal, mainly the jungles "morelia spilota cheynei" for one. Alternatively you could go for a chondro instead (still in the morelia sp.) and they are aboreal. Jungle pythons and Green tree pythons can be kept in a 2x3x4 (LxWxH) as adults happily. That way you don’t take up much floor space just height.
