yea hides have to be identical and to reply to your other post, i just use the natural light in my room for the light source.
im pretty sure if the hides are not identical then the snake will be more stressed but im not sure i have heard that you should use identical ones a lot
and what i do with my frozen rodents is leave them out in the same room as the snake, then use a hairdryer once they are fully thawed.. and hair dry the scent of the rodent towards the snake, when i do this my snake is in hunt mode and then just snaps the rodent up in seconds.

3. I only use that to read the humidity level. I have a digital attached, but you can't see it.
4. Ok, I'll get the heat up some more. The book I bought said 85-90.
5. I do use an under tank heater, plus it's naturally warm in my room too. That's what side (the hot side) is the digital thermostat on. You can see the white cord on the far right side.
1.I used a rainforest peel and stick, applied it with water and squeegee. Petsmart or Petco has it.
2.I would use a hide where the entrance is on the ground, the one in your photo looks like a roof entrance. Petsmart or Petco has it.
Also, I failed to notice that your heat lamp is giving off light, no good. Go get a (CHE) ceramic heat emmiter bulb, they heat the tank but supply no light, which is good since your BP is fine by the window day cycle. A 60 watt would work, and I know Petco/Petsmart carries the black dome like in your photo that has a dimmer on it. Brand name is Flukers.
