Six by two should be fine for adult female. However, I keep babies to yearlings in a sweater box size tub in a rack. The young ones are sort of skittish until they gain some size and confidence. Once they start growing it is off to the races and you can get them out of the tub and into a larger cage. They definitely do not like high temperatures, despite being from the southeast. I keep mine at ambient mid 70 degrees with access to 80 at the warm end. High temps will impact them much more severely than cool temps. When opaque, I supply them with a box filled with damp sphagnum moss. Give them lots of food and fresh water. I feed my babies a lot. My opinion is that you should mix up the diet; do not just give them rodents exclusively. Mine eat quail, chicks and pieces of DOR snakes, along with some rodents. I see no reason not get a pair and raise them up if I were you. One permit from FWS will cover more then one animal. Males larger and more bold than females.
