New kingsnake owner with a few questions

Always loved snakes so i finally took the plunge and got a grey banded king snake. Few questions:

1. Do these snakes need UVB light?

2. I got an exoterra 24x18x12, I did the math and its a littler over 20 gallons. Is this big enough for this type of snake for life or will I need to upgrade bigger?

Re: New kingsnake owner with a few questions

Most snakes will benefit from UV light. You could have a simple bulb in a fixture ontop of the screen. The snake will decide how much exposure they want.

Grey banded kings are among the smallest but that said kings tend to be fairly active so I'd look for a 36x18 cage for an adult long-term. Classifieds are full of larger glass cages and often PVC.

Grey banded are cool snakes. I've wanted one for awhile.
