Realized I was missing a bullsnake last night when I went in to feed. Her tub has a tiny indent in the side (I have them covered but one side fell off) and she had squeezed herself through it and escaped. Thankfully there's not really anywhere to go in that room and I found her under the rack. Lured her out with a mouse :)
Snake room is coming together. It's not the prettiest, but everyone is thriving.
The ARS rack houses my ball pythons (and Angolan babies).
The 74qt rack is currently housing my yearling bull snakes and black kingsnakes. That rack will eventually be replaced by another Christmas tree rack so everyone will have nice big tubs.
The hatchling rack and incubator are in the closet lol
I am of the opinion that there is indeed a right way to utilize snake racks. These guys have hides, substrate bedding, fake foliage, and other means of enrichment. They also have windows so they can have a day/night cycle.
I think it's extraordinarily important to move toward a higher quality of life for our critters, even the ones we buy with the intent to breed.
