>>For about six months of the year, mine are at room temp. No external heat. They are thriving, eating and digesting well. You probably already know this, but indigos do not tolerate hot conditions at all. Surprising for a snake from Florida, but they prefer cooler temps.


I was just about to say the same thing ha! I provide uth heat for my guys but they stay far away from it pretty much non stop and prefer the cooler side where it stays room temp between upper 60's at night to high 70's or low 80's by day depending on that days temps. They are thriving wonderfully as well, eat and digesting like hungry piggies!

I think I could remove the uth heating completely and they would never notice, but I like it there just in case one night they decide..."Hmmm, I feel a little chilly, think I will go sit on that warm thingy over there for a little while"

The very existence of flamethrowers means that sometime, somewhere, someone said to themselves..."You know, I really want to set those people over there on fire...but I'm just not close enough to get the job done."
