    Reptile 1040-40

    Classic Series | Large Frame | Complete Rack

    FB40 Tubs | 4 Tubs per level | 10 Levels | 40 Tub slots

    Recommended for ball python adults <2000g (or other similarly sized species.)

       We designed the Reptile 1040-40 rack with one thing in mind: to allow for more animals to be kept in the same amount of space as our most popular breeding rack, the Reptile 1030-70. The Reptile 1040-40 allows for ten more animals to be kept in the rack without sacrificing additional floor space. This rack is perfect to house both large breeder males and smaller adult female ball pythons while still allowing for more . With the narrower tub design, the animals seem to express a greater sense of security in the FB40 tub. Once females reach 2000g they should still be moved up into an FB70 tub. So whether you want to have a designated male rack or want to allow for more comfortable growth/housing for all your adults, the Reptile 1040-40 is a very versatile rack that is ideal for up and coming breeders, or for experienced long-time keepers who want to simplify care and maintenance like all other Freedom Breeder rack systems.

    To purchase this model “by level” (less than a “complete” rack – 10 levels) or add-on levels for an existing reptile 1040-40 – Click Here

    *** Please be aware that All Freedom Breeder racks are constructed with a 1/8” gap between the top of each tub and the bottom of the rack frame. This is to provide sufficient airflow and to allow tubs to slide more smoothly. Some smaller species/hatchlings may be able to escape and should be considered before ordering.


    Rack Features

    • Welded J4 Stainless Steel Frame – All levels are welded with interlocking leg connectors to create a sturdy, long-lasting, and versatile construction. J4 stainless steel is lightweight and will not rust! (Compared to our old galvanized steel rack design.)
    • Injection Molded Tubs – Available in Grey or Semi-clear colors and can be either flat or with a molded 16oz. deli-cupholder (deli-cups sold separately.)
    • Hanging Tub Design – Tubs hang from channels rather than resting on a shelf – prevents heat element damage/wear.
    • Custom Heat Panels – Panels are designed to sit flush, just below the tubs, to eliminate any risk of tubs rubbing against heating element (can cause wear and possible shorts/failure.) Metal panels enables heat to more evenly disperse across the whole panel to prevent hot spots. Our insulation upgrade can further increase the efficiency of the panels and can save on energy costs.
    • Individually Wired Heat Panels – Makes cleaning, troubleshooting simple and seamless. A single panel can be removed without needing to cut power to the whole rack.
    • Extra/Add-on Levels – Can be ordered with your rack to increase rack capacity or ordered separately and added on later, via our Custom Per Level – Standard/Large ordering page if/when your rack needs change.
    • Removable/Replaceable Parts – Vent clips, ventilation inserts, heat panels, and tubs can be easily removed make cleaning and maintenance quick and easy!
    • Stacking Compatibility – Levels are able to be stacked with any other Freedom Breeder “standard frame” reptile rack levels or on top of any Freedom Breeder “large frame” reptile rack levels with the addition of a “Standard-to-Large Frame Adapter.” (Sold separately)
