    Aquarium-safe silicone is safe for snakes. It has an odor when you first apply it, so let it cure before exposing your snake to it.

    Also I think it is a good idea to have matching hides on the hot and cool side. That way you know your snake is on one side or the other because the temps not because of a hide preference. He it loves the cool side hide and you have one on the hot side that it isn't comfortable in then it might not use it when it needs to for digestion etc.

    Re: Ideas on tank enrichment items

    Many breeders do not keep hides because they keep their snakes in tubs on a rack system because it’s usually pretty dark. Either way I still say to use hides for them. But yes, there should be a hide on the “hot” and the “cool” side. If you have trouble with keeping your humidity up in a glass enclosure I would recommend using a “humidity box”. It’s just as simple as a tub ware container filled with damp sphagnum moss (with no standing water inside). As far as enrichment goes, if your B.P is small you can put a little paper towel roll in there, but if she/he is bigger, I put in a PVC tube and he seems to love that. You can also use things like fake leaves, climbing branches (as long as you use a glass tank), half logs and things like that. Don’t be fooled by a half log though, it is not a hide, it is just enrichment. The snake can not fully hide in self In it. I guess you could close one side off, but I still recommend getting a fully enclosed hide. I hope this helps 😁
