Well then you can do it.

One good way is a plastic shoebox with about 2 inches of one end over a heat pad. Aspen can work well for that.

You may want to soak the snake in about 1/4 inch of water for 5 minutes (hardly a soak, but works well to keep their skin supple) when ambient conditions are dry. I did mine about once a week or so - heck I often fed them in there too. Less often during more humid times.

Super neat snakes. Kind of odorous for such a little snake. When they are eager to eat, feed them often. Cause they will shut off earlier than many snakes.
