What your saying is not a good excuse, in fact, its reason for you to not keep snakes, period. If you do not choose to keep them properly/safely, then don't keep them.

how about instead of digging a hole in the ground, make a small reptile shed, and control the temps. Many folks keep their reptiles in out buildings.
There are also many ways to heat a room. a small radiator type heater, can be used when temps drop below 50F, which would be rare. Heat tapes, etc etc.
Lastly, I think you make this stuff up, just to troll. I do not heat my house, and it gets a whole lot colder here, yet, the lowest the inside temps have been is 54F which is perfect winter temps for snakes. We do heat our bedroom at night. My animals have a building, which has a cooler, air conditioner, and heating. And some cages have heat lites, heat pads etc.
You claim to be intelligent, yet have not shown any indication of that. So exactly what are the room temps in your house?
