I have worked with some different types of snakes, mostly terrestrial. Corns, kings, milks, boas, rainbows...etc. But I also have a jungle carpet python and I must say. Aboreal snakes impress me a great deal. Especially the amazon tree boas, their wide range of colors, attitudes (always like a challenge), and I hear they are pretty decent eaters as well.

So, what I was wondering is, will this set up work out? I am planning a 2x3x4ft enclosure for 1 or 2 tree boas. I'm thinking cypress mulch for a substrate. 60-70 percent humidity with misting twice a day and water dish. LOTS of climbing limbs with forks, not just straight beams. Heat lights and a flourecent light. Feeding once every 5-7 days. 80-85 degrees during the day, and 75 at night. Does everything sound sufficent?

Thank you,
Jeff
