Heck with that, just build an enclosure....my large ones are basically plywood boxes (either 6'x3'x2' or 8'x4'x3'), with a sliding glass front, side and back vents, built in heating and lighting....a fraction of the weight and cost (usually about $200-$300) of a glass tank, far better as they are custom built for the snake, and one of the previously mentioned dimensions (equivalent to 270G and 720G respectively) will do even a 10' female boa her entire life.

Cecil... Would that be Cecil the Sea Sick Sea Serpent?

I think snakes merit mythical names, like Yggdrasil, Eden, Ouroborous or Quetzalcouatl. Most of those are a bit of a mouthful, though!
