Hello. I am setting up a habitat for a 3-year old male rosy boa whom I want to adopt. Clearly, I am new. Now, the enclosure I have is a converted Contico locker, because it is basically a glorified Rubber maid container that has more space inside (probably about the equivalent of a 22 gallon container, the size of his old home) and is sturdier and closes better, which I have drilled air/light holes into. My concern is the amount of light that the boa will have. For this question I'm only talking about light, not heat, for heat I intend to use heat tape under the tank. But I'm concerned that with its opaque sides, the snake's home will need more light coming in for the sake of his natural sleep patterns. Do I need a light inside the enclosure? I'm sorry if this is a stupid question but I really want to do everything in the snake's best interest. and not screw it up lol
