Default lighting boa

hi i have just brought a common boa i have read that uvb tube light is not
approiate as boas get there calcuim from there food so for lighting i use
a 50watt energy saving lightbulb and for heat a 100 watt cermaic heat lamp
temperature 82F at cool end about 95F-100F at the top end as my viv is 4ft
high humidity is 60-70. Am i able to fit in a 50 watt moon light for the
night time as im not sure if this can be done or would that be classed as
having 24hrs of light which would not be good for my snake. hope you can

No need for UV lighting. No need for moon lighting. Keep temp stable and humidity between 40-50 percent. A light to medium mist once a week with warm water will achieve this. Mist twice if snake is in shed (mine was a problem shedder, so ignore if snake sheds without aid).

Just live your normal life with regards to lighting. BCI are by and large lazy creatures (as are most snakes). They will for the most part only move between hides until they get hungry. When they are active they are hungry. Mine only ever got feed when she was 'hunting'. This ranged from 2 weeks between feeds to 2 months. Aged 2 she was a very muscular 6 foot snake.
