 New cage idea

Posted this also on the cage forum, but I thought I’d try here also! So I had this idea for a cage. I want to get an entertainment center, and make a cage for my jungle carpet python. I’ve got a lot of things figured out but one thing I haven’t come up with a good plan for is the heating. I was wanting to use my Flex watt heat tape on the inside (I don’t think the heat would go through the thick wooden floor). How to keep the snake from coming in direct contact with it kinda stumps me. What should I put over it? I would also like to be able to remove the heat tape for cleaning and sanitizing the cage. How would I go about doing that?

duct tape or electrical tape will work to hold it down, but allow you to remove it for cleaning. As far as keeping your snake from contacting it, that’s a little harder. Maybe try indoor/outdoor carpeting.. I don’t know how well that would work.

How big is the entertainment center? Most of them are only like foot wide, which is pretty tight for an adult.
