    Hi Corey,

    I suggest you use a water base stain and use Polycrilic.. Use the brush on one, and put several coats on. Let dry real good in between coats.. And let air for atleast week before your snakes goes in it..

    Hope that helps.

      A water based stain as Steve mentioned would be best. You can use either Polycrylic or Polyurethane, both will work fine. I prefer Polycrylic as it gives out less vapors and dries faster. I would apply a minimum of four coats. I prefer to let it air out for at least two weeks.

          i used thompsons water seal in mine and it seems to work really well!!! i let it air out for a month though put 6 coats on it and it handles water fine when my snake soaks and then slithers around the cage haven't seen any water marks yet and she has been in there for about 3 weeks now!!!
