Snake Starter Kits

The essential equipment you need.

X-Small Snake Kit

The 24” Snake Kit, is designed for use as a starter set up for several small species of snakes, but may be used to house certain smaller species for life. The 24” set up is an ideal starter size for baby Royal pythons less than 9 months old, or juvenile corn snakes or milk snakes up to 18 months. In fact, most slender bodied snakes, while they are under 3ft in length may be housed in this set up. A 24” set up may be used as a minimum enclosure for species such as male Hognoses, male Rosy boas, or Children’s pythons, though a 24” x 18” enclosure will provide a bit more space.

This kit includes a 24" x 15" wooden ND vivarium, heating provided by a small heat mat and heat bulb, a small water bowl, substrate, hides and a thermometer!

The 36” set up also makes for a good starter kit for several larger species of snakes, including Royal pythons, where it will house a Royal python up to 1 year old.

Medium-Deep Snake Kit

The 36” x 18” Snake Kit, provides a little more room than the 36” x 15” kit. This is a suitable minimum sized enclosure for most adult Corn snakes as well as some other Rat snakes, most Milksnakes and Kingsnakes and Hognoses, among others. The 36” x 18” set up can be a useful size if you have limited space available for a reptile enclosure and can be used in place of a 48” x 15” set up.

Premium Snake Kit

The 48” x 15” Snake Kit is a versatile kit that is able to accommodate a range of snakes. This set up is a preferable size compared to the 36” set up for corn snakes, king snakes and milk snakes, as well as a whole load of other smaller species including hognose snakes. The 48” set up provides a little more room for your snake to roam around and explore and allows you to get a bit more creative with décor and provide better hiding places to help make your snake feel more secure. In addition, the width of the tank allows you to create a good thermal gradient (hot and cool end) by placing all your heating at one end so that your snake can choose how warm or cool it wants to be.

Premium-Deep Snake Kit

The 48” x 18” Snake Kit is a versatile kit that is able to accommodate a range of snakes. This set up is ideal for most adult Royal Pythons, though a particularly large female may need a slightly larger tank. By being slightly deeper and taller than the standard 48” set up, the 48” x 15” set up gives you even more freedom for decorating your tank with hiding places, plants and other décor. A taller glass front makes it easier to see into the tank and watch your snake. As with the standard 48” setup, the width of the tank allows you to create a good thermal gradient (hot and cool end) by placing all your heating at one end so that your snake can choose how warm or cool it wants to be.

4'x'2 Snake Kit

Our Deluxe 48” x 24” kit without UV is suitable for a wide variety of snakes. Most species of snake which do not grow larger than 6 feet in overall length may use a 48” x 24” enclosure to house them for life. This enclosure is a great size to house a single or a small group of Royal Pythons and will give them plenty of room to move around and will allow you to fill the tank with interesting décor, hides and climbing branches. Amazon Tree boas, Dwarf Central American boas, Hogg Island boas, Bredls Pythons, Brazilian Rainbow Boas, Bull Snakes and many others could live in this enclosure. Also other larger species could use this enclosure as a temporary home until they are big enough to move to their full sized enclosures.
