Cage Questions

Postby Blue tongues love » Sun Jan 07, 2018 1:51 am

Hello Everyone, I am new to the forum and would like to introduce myself. I am Gracie, I love all reptiles very much. My dream pet is a blue tongue skink. I will be getting one later this year but have a few questions. My dad is building a reptile shelf for all of my reptiles to go in, but the shelf will only be about 11 inches deep. Would a cage that is 60"x11"x10" be an okay size for a bts? Should I keep the cage somewhere else? Thank you for anyone who can help me. :D

The bare minimum for a bts would be 36x18x18 so the length is good but the wideness is not

Agree with Bryson, too narrow but great length. Some can grow up to 24" and that just wont work. Large hides and water bowls would not fit well either.

Thank you for your help. I agree that large hides and water bowls wont fit well. I will most likely just get a large custom tank for it and keep it somewhere else.
