Anyone know of a good cheap mail order source for small plastic "kritter keeper" or otherwise small plastics boxes, not rubbermaid or sterilite?

A friend of mine uses this company for boxes for his hatchlings and yearlings. He highly recommends them. I personally haven't gotten any of their products as of yet.

Pioneer Plastics Inc. (http://www.pioneerplastics.com/)

He uses a soldering iron to melt air holes in the sides and lids. When he goes to a show he'll bring a box of them and he says they sell out pretty fast.

He usually uses/sells the 395-C model. Photo below:

Here's a shortcut to their online catalog:
Pioneer Plastics - Online Photo Catalog (http://www.pioneerplastics.com/order_on-line.htm)

Hope that helps. =)

Can you heat that type of viv with a standard UTH?

Thanks Misty...

I did save that link for future reference. However I am specifically looking for those "kritter keepers". You know the cheap plastic carriers that almost every pet shop has. They usually come with brightly colored vented lids. Some have a clear "access" panel in the lid. They also usually have handles.

I've checked a few online dealers but they seem a little pricey to me. I'm looking for a bulk quanity. Say between 50 and 100 for now.

BTW...these are not for snakes but rather for juvinile arborial geckos. That's why I need the taller boxes.

Those boxes do look nice though. Gonna have to check into those a bit more for hatchling snakes.

Thanks again,

I bought some critter keepers at the DOLLAR TREE store. I don't know where you live but everywhere I go I one of those stores. DOLLAR TREE sells them for $1.00 check'em out.
