That would be ok for a little while but it would need to be upgraded later on forsure.... They need some digging space... and also when they get 3 feet long they will be cramped when it comes to turning around in that enclosure... Would the lights be built into the enclosure or resting on top of it???

Ya might be a bad idea then... You dont wanna get an animal and have it out grow its enclosure then not be able to provide it with another one..... You could do what i do.... Once it starts to out grow its enclosure build or buy the new one and then sell the old one... a lot of my enclosure have paid for themselfs from previous enclosures
