Snake species vs vivarium size? [sorted - thanks for your efforts] Answered
I have finally persuaded my wife that we "need" a snake, and she has agreed to something in the general area of a corn snake (at least, that's how I'm interpreting "the smaller the better, and don't you dare buy a python!").
I was going to go down the route of choose a snake then choose the right vivarium, when it occurred to me that the ideal location for me would be on a particular shelf.
I have the necessary skills to construct a vivarium, but it would be an odd size compared to others - approx 75cm across the front, 25cm tall and 25cm deep.
So, is there a snake that would be happy in a tank of these dimensions?
There is also the option of removing a shelf and having the tank twice as tall, so it could potentially have two floors with a hole between (and probably some sort of climbing branch up through the hole).
(On a slightly related note, are there any health reasons against using cyanoacrylate super glue in parts of the construction? I would, of course, give the glue plenty of time to cure & air before adding the resident.)
An extra condition has been added - it had better not be smelly. Are snakes smelly on a day-to-day basis?
