Further on the belly heat issue- what is required is just plain heat! Whether from above, the side, below, doesn't really matter, in my opinion, for most species of snakes. But, it is much easier to provide heat from below, since the snake can sit on the warm area, and since warm air rises, than it is to try to heat from above with a light. Compare a warm spot created by a 100 W light bulb from above the cage with a 10 W heat pad, and then consider the electricity savings.
