0:00:00.8: Oh man. Good morning.

0:00:07.6: Hey, you little brat. How you doing? He’s in here screaming, you’re mad that I didn’t come and say hi to you first? Huh? You mad I didn’t came say hi to you first? Is that what you’re mad about? Wanna say hi to everybody. Say, “Hey”. Say “Hey, YouTube.” Gonna get you some food. Get you all ready.

0:00:26.8: How you been? No, no, no, no, let me pet you. Looking nice. Because I have the camera, you gotta show off. Hi Tarook. The time has come bro.

0:00:39.5: What’s in the box?

0:00:40.4: Tarook, can I help you? I have to show people what we got, okay? Can you go back to your perch place, thank you.

0:00:46.2: We got a surprise.

0:00:47.4: Surprise. Check out this sweet box. So, I’ve been telling you guys we’re getting a new cage for Rusty. Vision has been so kind to send me a brand new cage, for free 50. All I gotta do is make ’em a couple of videos and answer some questions for you guys, a lot of people ask me how I set these cages up, how I do the heat on them, how to regulate the heat, how I wire all the electrical on them… Yadda, yadda. So that’s what we’re gonna do today, we’re gonna set this bad boy up and teach you how to do it and get Rusty a brand new awesome way bigger cage. Hey, Ralphie, what are you doing, man?

0:01:23.7: So without further ado, let’s see what’s inside this bad boy.

0:01:28.5: Dude what the hell.

0:01:30.9: Oh my God, it’s a Pepe.

0:01:32.0: What the heck is that, have you been sleeping in there this whole time?

0:01:35.2: I’m trying to sleep in here dude.

0:01:37.3: That’s where you have been this whole time. I was wondering where you were.

0:01:42.9: 9 AM, I’m still tired over here.

0:02:02.9: I’m pulling out brand new vision cage. Alright, so this Vision cage, this is the Model 433, okay? It’s 48 inches long, 28 inches high and 28 inches deep, which is a great size cage for my little Russ, ’cause he’s getting bigger. Right?

0:02:22.1: It’s great size, great size cage for Pepe. Little Rusty back there, my little dude. He’s awesome, he’s getting a lot bigger, so we need to upgrade his cage. Now, this cage still is only gonna be good for like another year, and then Mr. Real estate agent over here needs to find Tyler Nolan a way bigger property, so we could build Rusty this huge, majestic, awesome walk-in enclosure, and that’s what’s gonna… That’s what’s gonna get…

0:02:48.8: We are gonna get you an awesome facility, for sure.

0:02:50.8: I can’t wait. Look, this room is getting super full, see? There’s cages. I’m up to my eyeballs in Vision cages in here, okay? But I love these cages. They’re awesome, they’re stackable. They look great, super clean, makes my snake room look legit. I love them. I think we’re gonna set up right here, I’m gonna get rid of this little stand right here, I’m in the middle of building a stand for this cage outside right now, so we’re gonna get that finished up right here in a second. Show you guys how I’m doing that, pretty easy, I’m just using 2 x 4s. You see under all these cages right here? I’ve got these little 2 x 4 frames to hold everything up with, they work out great, super strong. So we’re gonna do the same thing here, we’re gonna build this 2 x 4 frame, we’re gonna put this cage right here. I’m gonna build a nice little shelf on top of it, put the mangshans right on top, insularis with them as well. Everything will be nice together, all nice and happy. And it will look great, also.

0:03:44.7: It’s important, you know what I mean? This is the room that we film in the most, so we gotta make sure it looks aesthetically pleasing for everybody. And it’s functional too, not only that, you gotta make sure in your snake room when you’re dealing with these certain animals, not only is it not crowded, but you have plenty of room to come out and handle these animals. You know what I mean? If you’re in close quarters with the King Cobra and something bad happen, it could get a little hairy. You wanna make sure you have enough room to handle these animals safely.

0:04:25.0: This is the frame that we’re gonna use, hopefully it fits. Measure twice cut once, that’s the goal. Hopefully, we’re gonna bring this inside in here in a second and the cage is gonna slide right in there.

0:04:49.2: So check this out. Look, perfect area. Yes, my room is getting a little bit crowded, but it’s good.

0:04:56.6: We’re moving soon.

0:04:57.5: Yeah, exactly. Moving, bigger property, keep that in mind. So let’s see if this fits, so this should just slide in there.

0:05:13.7: Oh yes.

0:05:16.7: Very nice.

0:05:17.1: Dude look at that.

0:05:18.9: It’s flush.

0:05:20.2: Flush.

0:05:20.8: Beautiful.

0:05:21.6: It’s like I made that on purpose like that, you know what I mean? We’re gonna get this cage set up with lighting, and I’m gonna show you guys how I do that, okay? That is the main purpose of this video, is to teach you guys how I set up my Vision cages, the lights I use, the hardware I use, how I do it all, etcetera. So let’s get to that.

0:05:39.6: Alright, so Vision cages, they all have vents in the back, you see how this cage right here, has this big vent in the back here? Now this is great to have obviously for ventilation, but I don’t wanna cover up the whole thing with a light. These cages have smaller vents in the back, check this out… See in the back of these cages, it’s only 3 inches wide by maybe, what? 13 inches long. So that vent is not that big, if you were to put a light over that vent, then there’s no ventilation in these cages, and that is not good, so I do not like putting lights over those vents, okay?

0:06:13.7: I like to do it like this. Now, these cages have LED lights in them because the heat is regulated inside these cages. They don’t need to get that hot because this room stays a perfect temperature to where these guys don’t need heat lights. But you see these fixtures up here, these fixtures I get at Home Depot, okay. So just like this, they’re these little light fixture discs. So with these vision cages, you want them to have the heat on one side of the cage so that way if it gets too hot on the one side, they can go on the other side, they don’t have to bask in the heat light, they can go to the cool spot right on the other side. So I’m going to go up here, and this is where I want to put this light fixture right here. Alright, so this is where I’m gonna put this. Now, a lot of you guys might be thinking like, “Why are you about to drill into this age when you can just put a light fixture here and put the UV there?” Yes, that is doable, but like I said before, I want to keep as much of this ventilation space open as possible, so that’s why I am about to drill out this part right here. So we’re going to drill out this first screw, easy peasy, just like that. Drill the second one. Boom just like that.

0:07:29.9: Now, not only do you need those two screw holes, but you also need a hole right in the middle, put the electrical wire through, okay? ‘Cause you’re gonna have to run the electrical through then attach this, then put it all together. So see what I’m doing here, threading that wire through that mean middle hole, bring it through like this. Now, simple enough. Now, you don’t need to be an electrician to do this, just know what you’re doing. I’m not telling everybody to go out there and start wiring your own cages. If you don’t know what you’re doing, ask an electrician friend for help or somebody that knows what they’re doing, it’s not too hard, you can probably look up a different YouTube video to show you how to do it. It’s pretty simple, just make sure that you do things correctly, you don’t jerry-rig anything because you don’t want anything to happen, get some crazy electrical fire, burn your house down, because you watched a Tyler Nolan video about putting together Vision cages, you know what I mean? Let’s not do that, people. Make sure you know what you’re doing, alright? Screwdriver.

0:08:43.3: So going to get these on there like so, there we are and this one like this, you just wrap it around that connector right there, just like that, perfect. So what I’m gonna do, I’m gonna get in here. I’m gonna put them up through here, and then just put those nuts on there, Jake. That’s one. Yeah and boop, that was two, that’s two. Boy said tie. Tie it like a tiger. We got the light fixture in, so now we’re just gonna take out a bunch of freaking cord like this… That should be long enough, right? Like seven feet, bada-bing bada-boom. Cut this. Now we’re gonna do the same thing. Now, these little plugs, check this out. You can also get these right at Home Depot or your home improvement store whatever the hell you guys have, wherever you’re from. These little plugs, they open up like this, boop, no plastic plug. Look at that, open it up, positive, negative, there’s no ground on these, which is awesome, makes life a little bit easier, you don’t have to worry about doing a ground, which is the third wire, whatever. Two wires, do the connections, put it back together, plug that bad boy in, you’re good to go. Alright, so just a little spoiler alert for you guys, we’re setting up Rusty in this cage right after this little light tutorial for you guys since so many people have been asking questions about how to do this. Finally making a video, so that way even Vision can use this video.

0:10:34.4: If they need help, they wanna… People email Vision asking you how to set up the electrical in cages, boom, now you can refer right back to this video, it’s gonna be great. But at the end of this video, which is not too far from now, we’re gonna take Rusty out of his cage, we’re gonna show you guys how big and beautiful that he is getting and we’re gonna feed him a ball python today. Now if you guys have been watching before, I’ve been feeding him strictly Burmese pythons for the last few months now, but a pet store hit me up a few weeks ago, and they had a bunch of dead ball pythons that were in the freezer and they needed to get rid of them, they were just gonna toss them out. So I was like, “Hey, just give them to me, I have a king cobra that will be more than happy to eat all of the ball pythons that you have.” So that’s what we’re gonna do today. I can’t wait to give him something new. It’s a nice, bigger… They’re bigger than these burms, they’re fatter, they’re, yeah awesome.

0:11:27.7: Alright. So this is the LED UV light. I’m just wiring up real quick, same thing as before, on the other light, positive and negative, the ground to put on the negative side, so that way the light turns on. Sweet deal. Now this one, see, it’s not a very wide light, so I can just put this light on the ventilated part and it’ll still have plenty of room for air flow to go in and out of the cage. Look at that, we have light, pretty awesome. Let’s get the heat light in there, and it’s time to set this cage up, put the top on there and put everybody back into position.

0:12:35.5: Alright, moment of truth. See if I’m a good electrician. There we go. Perfect. Hell yeah. This is the perfect, got a 75-watt heat light in here, that’s perfect for Russ. Hell yeah dude, that’s awesome. Perfect, so he’s got his basking spot right here. Put his high box, his water ball. Maybe, like you know what I mean? I’m just gonna fill up the cage, get it all decorated and nice and cool for Russ, get him in here, get him fed.

0:13:11.0: Nice.

0:13:11.0: Got Chun-Li and Raiden. Dude, look how awesome this looks. So stoked. Very excited. No float up in here. Get Russ’ cage set up and see how he likes it. Alright, so now I’m gonna take Russ out of his cage. So that way I can grab a couple of things. We’re gonna grab a couple of these plants and a couple of other little high boxes in there and his big water balls. I don’t have an extra big water ball for him. Move it all or to take him out, put him in the trash can, put all of his stuff into his new enclosure, put him in there and then feed him. So let’s safely get this cage open. Mr. Jakie. This high box safely out of here. Hey Russ. It’s crazy how light he’s getting man. Like dude look how light he is, he looks great, and he just ate probably eight or nine days ago now, he just ate. But dude, look how beautiful my little Russ is getting, such an inquisitive.

0:14:33.6: Russ no little any more.

0:14:34.7: Dude I know. He’s getting bigger. Pretty quick. So here, Jake, can you open up that trash can for me real quick? Let’s get my little guy in the trash can. Just like that. Alright. Dude look how awesome this looks. This looks fantastic, right? Dude, I love it. Got the mangs up here, got the insularis. This little set up, we still have plenty of room in here, there’s cages all the way around, 360 in this room. Got cages everywhere. It’s awesome. Super cool. So let’s get Russ out of the trash can.

0:15:38.3: Alright Rusty. Dude I can’t believe how big this guy is getting. Such a pretty cobra. He’s so cool. Now a lot of you guys comment on how alert and twitchy he is and how aware of his environment he is. Now, all that’s gonna take is just handling him more and more and more, and I handle him a good amount, I probably take him out like once a week. I’m gonna try to make it an effort to handle him more. I was talking to one of my friends the other day. He takes his king cobra out every other day and handles him for about 30 minutes, just so he gets used to being handled and gets more acquainted with the handler. You know what I mean? But what a cool freaking snake man. Now let’s get him in his new cage and see how he likes it. He smells all the old plants he had in his cage. He’s like, “Oh this is familiar.” But dude look at the size of him compared to this cage. Such a better fit for him, that other cage, that other Vision was getting just way too small and I felt bad because he’s just growing so fast. Now look at this, this cage is perfect. Perfect size for him. Look, he’s like literally the perfect size for this right now. This is hopefully, this cage is gonna last him six months to a year, I’m gonna hope. Look at that Russ. Dude, you like your new cage, bro? You’re so excited. Like, look at this. Like this looks so much better. Right?

0:17:00.5: So sick dude.

0:17:01.5: Dude, so much better. Look how much room he has. Look, he loves it. Just checking it out.

0:17:06.0: Like Alex said this is like something you’d see in a zoo.

0:17:07.3: He could literally slither through his cage. Oh man, awesome.

0:17:11.8: Get stretched out.

0:17:13.3: You think you want eat, bro? I got a ball python for you. Wanna try to eat something? His colors are absolutely unreal, especially right after he sheds. He just shed a few days ago and dude every time he sheds, his color just gets more and more vibrant and more lighter, it’s freaking awesome. Alright, let’s go grab that ball python. Let’s see if Russ is gonna eat in his new enclosure which he might and he might not, you know what I mean? Snakes are picky eaters. But he’s a pretty awesome eater. Last week, he ate on the floor for Chandler. So today hopefully he’s gonna eat in his brand new cage once he sees this ball python. This is a great meal for him, he’s not gonna need a meal for probably a couple of weeks after this one. Look let’s get a head shot. There you go, smell that thing.

0:18:04.3: What a fantastic eater bro, holy crap, dude. He is in a brand new enclosure, does not know this environment at all, I mean obviously he knows that he’s in the same freaking snake room, but dude, to have a king that eats on point like this is awesome, because I’ve had so many kings in the past, and I’ve had them all have issues with eating whether it’s just, it’s a process. You know what I mean? When you’re raising up kings, sometimes they eat great, sometimes they don’t. It’s a pain in the ass. It’s awesome to have a king with a great appetite like this, obviously he’s in a brand new enclosure, he’s eating right away, he’s got nothing to worry about, pretty awesome. So let’s let him slurp this thing down and try not to disturb him a whole lot.

0:19:21.1: Alright, so he just got that little tiny bit left. Look how thick he is right now. Look at that. Got such a good meal in today. That is awesome. Whoo. Sorry, bro. Are you mad at me for filming you? You’re like, “Dad, leave me alone, I’m trying to eat.” Down the hatch. My favourite part is that last little piece of spaghetti. Come on, finish it up here, bud. There we go. Awesome. What a great snake, dude. Thanks, little Russ. Is that yummy? Delicious, delicious.

0:20:18.5: Oh yes, you’re such a big strong snake.

0:20:22.4: Alright. Bing-bang, boom. Look at that. That is a sweet set up, right?

0:20:28.7: That is badass.

0:20:30.4: Badass, I dig it. Dude. Got all the mangs up there. Dude. I just, I love the way that it came out. It accents the room perfectly. Like look, look at my room now, it’s just looks dope. It fits perfect. Oh, that is it. Not bad, bro. We did that pretty quick, too. That was only a couple of hour’s worth of work. Not bad at all. Rusty got a meal in. He got a new cage. Dude, he’s King in the castle right now. Awesome, dude, he’s got the biggest cage in here.

0:21:00.2: Dope, man, I’m glad I got to spoil my king with a new cage. And thank you Vision. Thank you, thank you, thank you so much. It really means a lot having sponsors like you guys and being able to work with you guys.

Bada bing bada boom. I hate saying that.

0:22:23.6: It’s your best phrase whether you like it or not.

0:22:25.6: I hate it.

0:22:26.2: It doesn’t matter how you feel like.
