Greetings!

Setting up a wood Hagen Vivexotic terrarium for my son, which will have a proportional stat and all the usual bells and whistles.

I live in Italy, so I'll be using products available in Europe. I keep a few milksnakes myself, and am using radiant hat panels, which do a great job in 36" long terrariums. These were purchased years ago and are still highly reliable combined with Microclimate B2 PULSE stats.

It seems that the radiant heating panels are not as popular as they once were. A company called HORTOSOL has a thin, rigid waterproof heating pad that is intended to be placed on the floor, but I'd like some input before I use this option.

I'd be using aspen as bedding, and the terrarium would have a large heavy water bowl, and some climbing branches, and perhaps some above ground plastic foliage. The setup would house a sub adult L. t. floridana ("BROOKSI"), so the larger terrarium would be appropriate for the snake.

Please give me your best solutions, and a tip as where to place the thermostat sensor, which would obviously be well secured in its position.

Thanks very much for your help!
