Kenyan Sand Boa Questions

I bought a 25" long male Kenyan Sand Boa today - very cool creature. I have a few questions for those with some Sand Boa experience, however:

1. What humidity should I provide in his terrarium? Currently it is a steady 50% with a screen top.

2. How much bigger might he get? I've read conflicting data on the internet.

3. How do you recommend I feed him?

I have him in a 20-gallon long aquarium with 3" of aspen bedding as a substrate, heated externally with an under-tank heating pad to 95 F (35 C) on one side. The other side isn't heated and remains at 78 F (25.5 C). I keep a 4" diameter cup of water for him in one corner.

Thanks for any adivce/input.
