Re: Specific heat mat question for thayeri kingsnake that is driving me nuts !!!!

I don't keep kingsnakes so take this for what it is worth but I've caught several hundred in the wild. Probably more than 90% were found hiding under rocks, tins, or boards. I stumbled across a few on the crawl during the day but they just do not go roaming around that much by nature, they crawl under stuff and hide. I don't think you will need a deep substrate provided you have at least two hides. You can make a hide from near anything, I am using some freesbees I got for free right now in some cases. In my tubs I use paper or a thin aspen bedding for other snakes so that the heat can penetrate.
