Many years of experience with keeping Hognose snakes and a great deal of product knowledge went into the creation of this entry level habitat kit. It has been designed to use robust, efficient products that will keep your snake happy and healthy, and it’s simple to upgrade if you wish. Corn snakes can be very variable in size, and should they exceed 90cm in length then the next size up should be purchased.
Hognose Snake Vivariums
The VivExotic wooden vivarium that forms the base of this habitat is large enough to provide a good heat gradient whilst allowing your young snake plenty of room to move and exercise. It is also very secure, although do take care to ensure that the vents in the back are seated properly – and the right way round. The wooden sides allow the snake to feel secure, and the front glass gives the owner a good view into their pets’ habitat.
Heating and Safety for Snakes
Heating is provided by a heat projector. This will provide a basking spot during the day for the snake, and will also gently heat the air in the vivarium, providing a heat gradient across the whole space.
Safety with heat lamps is paramount, and the lamp holder in this setup is a solid, reliable unit that will give you years of trouble free service. The ceramic holder itself is heat resistant and rated for up to 200 watts, with the E27 screw fitting ensuring compatibility with a wide range of commonly available vivarium heat lamps. It also features a unique 180 degree rotating bracket which allows ultimate flexibility, and precision aiming of your bulb in order to create a basking hotspot anywhere you would want to put it. It also has an in line on/off switch, and a heat resistant cable.
When using heat bulbs around snakes, it is vitally important to provide an adequate heat guard. For ease of use the one provided with this habitat kit is robust and easy to fit. Due to its innovative design, it is easy to access the heat bulb when it needs changing and is robust enough to last for years.
The touch screen thermostat can be set to control your heat projector in a dimmer setting. Touchscreen operation and an intuitive interface make this unit simple to program, and with a five-year guarantee, it’s also excellent value for money.
UV light is provided for the wellbeing of the snake and also helps to provide a day/night cycle.
One of the most important items of equipment in all of the reptile keeping is the digital thermometer! The thermometer that we include with this habitat is reliable, robust and with two probes it’s possible to monitor both the cool and warm ends of the vivarium at the same time. We have been using these units for years now, both in-store and personally – and we think that they are just right for keeping track of the temperatures in your pets’ enclosure.

Should you require a cabinet for your new snake vivariums, this particular item is designed to form a complete unit with the VivExotic vivariums. It attaches directly to the bottom of the vivarium, forming sturdy support along the whole length of the base. Looks-wise, it completes the setup into a solid, attractive piece of furniture that complements any living space, as well as providing storage space for the items that you need to keep your young snake happy and healthy.
