Thanks for the replies...
Keep them coming haha
Ball Pythons are cool too, only have a male at the moment, not planning to breed any time soon.

You don't need UVB for a royal let alone any snake!

Are you sure he doesn't mean a ceramic bulb?

People debate the whole heat mat vs bulb thing all the time. My male is on a heat mat and does fine. But it can be dangerous when they get to a heavy size, once they are coming near adulthood do what I'm gonna do and switch to a bulb. He is a baby CB12 whom is active so it isn't an issue at present...

My general rule with snakes is if they readily eat and are happy to breed in their enclosure, then they are more than comfortable with the conditions...
