My boa is now using her rock pile more often. Comprised of 7 rocks, it is almost a foot high, and occupies about 25% of her vivarium at the right corner. It has a cave-like cavity where she can hide in low light.

She still very much loves to move around often, and is surprisingly active - for both a boa and a female. (My males usually tended to be much more active than females, across species.)

I'm really glad that I do not use an under-tank heater. They tend to encourage the snake to stay in that spot only, usually concealed. Overhead basking mimics natural sunlight and encourages my snake to be seen much more often.

My design strategy works - and I get my reward. She's out & about right now. Happy Herper! (;
