As one who built enrichment for zoos. That's not what I am talking about. There is a difference between enrichment, which is considered, above and beyond(normal) and shutting down from not having the basic necessities.
In zoos, as well as here, its not about the animals. Zero is not the basic needs. Zero is the point of death or insanity.
for instance, food/water and shelter are basic necessities. In your case David, you provide a basic normal shelter for your kingsnake. Its not enrichment, enrichment would be things above and beyond the basic. In your case, kingsnakes live IN the earth. You provided a "little bit" of normal, not a lot of normal, At least your king can make a chamber and bedding area, as it wants. Thank you for that
