Default Light Tents

Can anyone recommend a good light tent for taking pictures of royals?

Also what size would be best? Advice appreciated.

I use softboxes now to diffuse light for the snakes. You put these over the lights... in my case i just use a couple of small speedlights with 12" softboxes, and i point them both at the snakes. I never really did use the tent i had. Before this i used to bounce the light off the ceiling, using a speedlight.

I use the 80cm tent and its fine even for large royals.

Yeah might be ok for babies but nice to have the extra space if you need it as well.
