Your other option is to use a plastic Really Useful box with heat mat and thermostat under the box: this is better for hatchlings.
This is what i'd of said, make sure that when you get one its eating well, i've got a royal, shes about 3 months old now but shes never taken food on her own im assist feeding her, they can go 2 ways, either eat like pigs or non feeders, but they really are very sweet little snakes.
Hope you get the advice you need, you should get some great advice on here.
