I'm by no means saying whether you should or should'nt, but I keep various species of pythons, boas and skinks and a few other odds and sods at about 80-82F during the day (much hotter basking spot for the skinks) and the whole room drops to the low 70's at night. Works for me. I'm not a big fan of thermometers, these temps are taken from random checks. I'm sure the temperatures fluctuate, especially on colder nights like we've been having lately.
