: I kept some TX patchnose for a short while. They did prefer lizards, but you should be able to convert them eventually using scent manipulation.

I'm by no means an expert on keeping this species...but..I would set up a decent size cage with a thermal gradient, upper 70's to low 80's on one end and a nice hot basking spot where they can get 85-90 on the other...and of course good hide spot on the cool end...and I think you'll do fine.

Whenever you are not certain of the temps a critter prefers, thermal gradients are best...the snakes will tell you what they prefer by the way act in the cage.
