Rubber boas are truly a species that thrives in cooler climates. They can digest meals at low temperatures. While certainly they bask to reach temps in the low 80s (maybe higher), this is very seasonal.

I think this is part of the reason rubber boas are not more popular. If you live where they occur, easy to keep. If you live in warm and humid areas, a bit tougher to keep properly unless your room background stays pretty cool.

Just to give you an idea of how they live, there is an area in So Cal that when it rains in Summer and the temps drop into the 50's, the rubber boas become surface active. At higher temps good luck seeing any.
