Hi all, I wanted to share an idea and get some feedback.

I have been thinking of relocating my Australian olive python outdoors. I was also considering this with a Centralian. I have read that the Bredls are pretty tolerant of temps that dip down a bit. I have read and experienced my olive(s) to be the same.

My vision was to put said snake on our patio in a durable wire mesh cage with a solid frame (aluminum) possibly. I would run a ceramic heat lamp so there was always access to a basking spot for the colder nights. I know it does occasionally get into the low 50s. I wondered if with access on those nights to a basking spot the python would do well. It would be a spot with partial but never full sun. I imagined a few hides, some large driftwood to climb and some perches near the heat source to allow a gradient.

What do you think?

I imagine only doing this with an adult or subadult snake.
