I saw you were asking about Bamboo Vipers. I have a pair of them, only had them for a couple of months but are great snakes. I have them in a 36 X 20 X 20 tank that I built a special top for to keep the humidity in and still provide fresh air. I keep them basking spot at about 84 to 85 during the day with and overall drop to 75 at night and humidity at 70 to 90%. My setup is about half water and half land with several branches and vines for climbing. I have four live plants and a small waterfall with a filter to help keep the water clean. They mostly defacate in the water so a long fish net cleans that out and the filter filters it. They are very sedatary durring the day and active at night. They both take live or f/t from tongs the femal eats every week the male about every other week. I mist them 3 or 4 times a week. They are mild tempered and don't really strike unless there is food. Overall great vipers.

Hope this helps.
