My ball loves his new enclosure! He's 4.5 feet and fits in it with extra room too, the lid is a little unstable but that's okay, we burry it half way into the substrate so that it's more stable and it's great, very realistic looking, looks great in his terrarium!
Not sure why this has poor reviews. To be fair, it is wildly overpriced but there arent many ball python hides on the market that are spacious enough for a full grown ball python while having a nice design. Chewy was nice and sent me a replacement after the top of the hide came broken. I will say I wish it had an magnetic element to snap the top and bottom (he's able to lift it) so it fits more securely, but maybe that is something I can figure out on my own. It took a couple minutes for him to figure it out, but once inside seemed comfy. Otherwise it does fit a full grown ball python and I am happy with that.
The description says to measure. I did, but it it still too small. The measurements they give are for the OUTSIDE, not the cavity inside. One of the answers to a question below says that the measurement of the opening is how to know if it is the right size for your snake. My snake can go through it with no problem, but the cavity is too small. Plus, the top and the bottom do not hook, fit, or stick together in any way so just trying to coil up inside causes it to move about. Also, in the reviews, one of them says it fit their 1 year old ball python. Keep in mind that the reviews are they same regardless of the size option you have selected so we do not know which size they got.
Bought this for my 1 year old ball python. She has outgrown all her hides so I bought this hoping it would be big enough. It is MORE than big enough for a 1 year old ball python. She has been using this hide exclusively since I put it in her tank. I am very happy with the structure of this product. It looks nice, feels very solid, made of fragile material so be careful. Very good weight to it as well. Recommend!!
It doesn’t look anything like the picture. I wish I would have known, so I would have ordered the other brand. Still does the job, but would not recommend.
