I'm buying a Milk Snake in a few weeks, I could do with some advice from people who know exactly what their talking about .

When I bought my Corn Snake, from a local dealer, she came with a 36' vivarium.

I'm buying the set up and snake from the internet and I was wondering which is the best route.

There is a set up, which comes with

Exo Terra Large Flat Faunarium 37x22x25cm
Heat Mat 7x12"
Habistat Mat Stat 100w
Two Exo Terra Thermometer Dail
Exo Terra Small Snake Cave
Cork Bark
Aspen Bedding - 5.5 Litre Bag
Exo Terra Medium Water Dish

Is this the best option for a baby? Or would I be better to buy vivarium straight away.

I was trying to find out how long the faun would be suitable, when the snake would outgrow it.

The end plan is to have a 3 viv stack with a Corn Snake, Pueblan Milk Snake and Mexican Black Snake. Long way away though.

Any help would be appreciated.

the faun you have mentioned is 1inch longer than the 36inch viv you have so you will find there is not much difference between the faun and your viv except maybe the hight.i would go for another woden viv if you want to stack them and ether partion it of use a smaller faun inside for a few months of so

the faun is only 15 inches (37cm), the viv is 36, sorry shouldn't have put both them down, so the faun is much smaller than the viv, would the same size viv be too big for a baby?

How long would it be comfortable in the faun? Or do you think buying a small viv is the way to go? Saving money is always a + as well :)
