> I use a huge atlas, and Madison (Ball Python) has not escaped since.
I use bunge (elastic) cords to hold the top of my ig's terrarium in place.
They are really neat cause you can hook them to each other or to any place you
think might secure your cage/terrarium. I have them going across the top to
hold the top in place and also around the bottom and hooked to the windowsill
to prevent the terrarium from being knocked over. Even with my 7 cats, this
has held everything securely and there have been no escapes. Also with the
bunge cords you don't have to worry about the top sagging from heavy objects.
This may not work for everyone but for my particular setup it has worked well.
I also put a
