Yep I lost a little baby cornsnake when I had one piece of 6mm and one piece of 4mm, I know it got through the gap because it left it's shed skin there then, I put an adult corn in that viv and it pushed against the glass so hard trying to get out that the glass pane just smashed. I also had a viv wedge in, which I think added to the pressure on the glass. I ALWAYS use 6mm reinforced greenhouse glass now, and locks not wedges
I keep my reptiles in vivaria, heated with ceramics. If you need set-up help, and can't find the answer here;
