I'm new to the snake world and have a five month old PUeblan Milk snake. Emma is active, eats on schedule and seems to be in very good health. What I'm trying to find out is should I use a night heat lamp and a day lamp. Started out using a heat pad at night but have started using the night light for about two weeks now to keep constant temps in the vivarium. 75 on the cool side and about 85 on the other 24 hours a day. Is this correct? or does the warm side need to drop at night? She does move from side to side so that is a good sign but she has partial sheds. No skin is left on her body but the skin is broken. Is this something to be concerned with or does she just need more humidity? Any info on better care would be much appreciated. I cannot find any definitive answers about heating online. It seems there are only preferences. Thanks guys
P.S. Long Live The Milk Snake!
