  • [Heat Placement] Building a New Rack/enclosure

    Hi all, Im new here but i have had boas for about 4 years. I still consider my self a newbie and i am always willing to learn.

    I want to Build a cabnient style boa enclosure it will be stacked 4 high, with eight actual units for snakes. Kinda like a dresser would look like .. but they draws wont slide out . The questions i have are.. I Bought 60 feet of Heat tape, im just wondering where would be the best and safest spot to put the tape. I have never used it before and want it done RIGHT! any sugestion or is there any Rack building Links or threads on here?

    Thanks again,

      somewhere water cant get to it. I built one and built upthe floor a little then put the flextape under plexiglass and then siliconed it really well. I did this on the hide side and then also put a CHE in it from the ceiling behind a cage to prevent burns. Good luck and post some pics. I am building an enclosure now but the drawer does slide
