Re: A new question maybe?

How about an IJ or Jungle? I always see them referred to as semi-arboreal. Ground heat or just the overhead like the GTP?

I don't think perches are necessary, but you could always include a shelf with a hot spot. A ground hotspot will work as well. If you want to supply perches you can, they will only benefit your snake and cage look.

Re: A new question maybe?

A perching carpet is a beautiful sight . Most of my carpets spend a majority of their time off the ground. Belly heat can definitely work but CHEs and RHPs are better options imo. With such a tall enclosure I'd provide an overhead and ground heat source.
