I've read many conflicting opinions about the best way to heat a melamine cage. I'm about to wrap up my enclosure build and haven't decided on the safest and most practical way to create a hot spot. The ambient temp in my snake room is around 75 degrees. This is for a Colombian boa. Ideally I'd like a heat pad or mat inside the cage. Some say it's perfectly fine and others say no way. It would, of course, be attached to my thermostat. Oh yeah, the cage is 4x2x2. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
