Reticulated Python Vivarium - 29/01/2011

The reticulated python vivarium in Realm of the Red Ape is being developed and both pythons are currently off-show. The size of the enclosure is being increased and will encompass one of the outdoor viewing windows, allowing the pythons to see out and, if suitable climbing arrangements can be made, the orangs to see in. The enclosure will also have a facility for it to be divided, allowing it to be cleaned without having to extract the snakes (not a job I'd want with a 6.7m python).

      I like the idea of the pythons spending their days gazing out of the window, licking their ls when they see the kestral, hope the orangs don't get too much of a shock when they investigate.
