    Re: painting the cage

    Hi josh, I have painted cages before, I haven't seen any negative affects on any of my animals(snakes or lizards) as long as it doesn't chip or peel. Use a good outdoor paint and I conered it with a coat of clear enamel. If you like th e wood look then just the enamel would do. I wouldn't use thompsons waterseal or something like that because I think it penetrates and am not sure if it really dries. I found it better than the alternative of replacing all the wood in the enclosure when it got mildewed and stained. I have a pic if my newest tank in the pic section(new enclosure). I used clear enamel not paint. Make sure the area is well ventillated for you and your snake and of course dont put them in it until it is totally dry.
