 Do gopher snakes climb?

I have two 4’ x 2’ x 2’ display cages and one of them has a shelf for climbing & resting on about a little less than half way up.
Would a pacific gopher snake use it?
If not then I’ll just stick her in the other and keep the shelf one for a more aboreal snake....

Although gopher snakes are more terrestrial you never know how each one will act ...offer it and then see if it uses the shelf ...maybe a hide box up there will look inviting??

They love tunnels. Try a hunk of 4"-diameter PVC tubing from Home Depot. Use some heavy-duty glue and a couple of heavy storage magenets, andit’s not just a shelf any more. It’s an elevated Secret Closet of Forbidden Mysteries. How much they love branches/ climbing rocks/ elevated platforms varies. How much they love tunnels does not.
