I agree with your last sentence, and that your 20' long cage example is ridiculous.

A better example would be a cage that is 88 degrees on one end, and 68 degrees (room temperature) on the other. Assuming a linear temperature gradient, it would be 78 degrees in the middle. If you have a type of milksnake that avoids temperatures above the mid-70s, then you're wasting over half of the space in the cage. Given that the original poster says that his ambient room temperature is 82 degrees during the day, and that the snake (until recently) always stayed on the cool side, even when digesting a meal, the actual conditions are even less ideal for a montane subspecies than the example I described.
