"having a spot that warm anywhere in the enclosure automatically disqualifies it from being a proper setup, and will lead to excessive restlessness and/or soaking"


I don't honestly think that providing a very small warm spot on the very far end for digestion would be detrimental in any way.... But that is ONLY providing that it can also easily seek optimum cooler temps that those ssp. thrive better in as well. It really comes down to if the enclosure's given size can provide both of these, and that the snake won't have to choose hiding over temps and vise-versa. For instance, a ridiculous example would be a 20 foot long cage. It could even be 20 degree temps on the very far end and 200 degrees on the opposite end. The snake would of course seek a comfortable medium somewhere in between those two extremes for any particular need as it sees fit.

It is definitely seeking something though as you guys already mentioned. Either food or different conditions.


cheers, ~Doug
