exactly does a snake enclosure consist of?
basically want 3 parts to a snake enclosure:
1) the warm

big enough for your snake to be able to hide completely),
2) the middle having a graduating temperature,
3) the other end, the water bowl. The
water bowl should be big enough for your snake to get in. Hint:
Fill the bowl only one third with water due to the snake displacing
the water when it gets in the bowl.
for the snake varies a great deal, from approved reptile sand,
