Hey, I'm trying to construct a vivarium for my CalKing in a 20 gallon long. My snake is about 24" right now and the setup consists of a peatmoss/bark mix with a natural stump that I aquired that doubles as a hideaway. In the corner I have Philodendren, but I want to get rid of it and focus more on the types of plants that would frequent the natural habitat of the CalKing. Anyone have any suggestions?

I was also think of a different substrate. I'm not a big fan of keeping colubrids on sand, but that is part of the range that CalKing is located in. I was thinking of a

2 part sand/1 part dirt mix

or

a 1 part sand/ 1 part dirt/ 1 part fine gravel mix

or

a 2 part sand/ 1 part fine gravel mix.

I'll try to post pictures tomorrow...does anyone have any suggestions or advice?
