I urge you to experiment, as you may just find out something. Here is what I found out.

I tried a few different caging strategies out. Im my experience, keep cages somewhat small. A 20 gal long is sufficient for an adult. My rosies fed and bred well when the cage was nothing more than a glass tank with screen top (or plastic cage with ample ventilation), some substrate (aspen or sani chips), a heat pad or ceramic emitter, and some newspaper or packing paper thrown over the top of the substrate. That's it. I tried rock hides, large cages, decorations, racks, etc, and came back to the very simple setups with more ventilation than for a typical kingsnake or cornsnake setup.
