Many breeders keep healthy carpets in terrestrial tanks their whole lives. That being said, many species of snakes (red tail boas, jcps, fer-de-lance, etc etc) are more arboreal when they are young. If you provide adequate cover and climbing structure I'm sure they will use it.

In your picture you have the light inside the tank. Are your snakes going to be able to reach it? Be careful, even a 25-50 watt bulb can get awfully warm to the touch after a few hours and have the potential to injure your snakes.


Good luck
Zach
