NBA star Dwight Howard gets a “mansion” and “condos” built on Animal Planet’s Tanked tonight — for his 14 SNAKES!

The Charlotte Hornets center is a massive fan of the slithery reptiles and used to have 20 as pets in his home.

Now he wants a whole “compound” created in two corners of a room in his new estate, to include parts of trees and water so the snakes feel like they’re in their natural habitat.

One of the areas will house his larger snakes and measure 12ft wide and 9ft tall — higher than Dwight himself, who stands at a lofty 6ft 11in.

Meanwhile, the other corner will house eight “condos” for his smaller snakes, and three slightly larger “homes” for his serpent friends.

Howard, an eight-time NBA All-Star who also has eight All-NBA selections, moved from the Atlanta Hawks to the Hornets earlier this year.

Will Tanked stars Wayde King and Brett Raymer be able to come up with something to make him — and his snakes — feel at home?

Tanked airs Fridays at 9/8c on Animal Planet.
