Hi there!

I have 2 MBKs they are really neat and really calm once there requirements are met.

My advice is put at least 6-8 inches of dirt from outside. just make sure the snake is healthy and strong enough to not get a infection from the nose rub. Do Not use potting soil in a bag, that stuff has too many chemicals. Dirt from out side or coco substrate mixed with play sand. Put a layer of leaves on that aswell.

The snakes will dig holes in there and have there own home in no time. they will come up to the surface when feeding time happens and sometimes they will coil up under the leaves very deliberately. They are great snakes! Good luck and post some pics we won't judge you personally here!
