concept art for the build idea (excuse the godawful J.S paint art) :

this would be made in the Reptile One RTF-900HT Terrarium​



I was wondering if its okay to mix substrates like this and if the ones im looking into would be suitable for a children's python? im worried about the coco husk getting into the heat pits so I would in theory be going for a chunkier mix opposed to the finer stuff. I would be using minimal sand in-between the pieces of reptile tile (for aesthetic reasons more than anything) but is that even okay? (im hearing a lot of different things about sand for snakes) another concern is putting rocks in at all, could it be a possible choking hazard? thank you for any replies

Put the water bowl at the cold end.

You've put more effort into that diagram than I put into setting up an enclosure from scratch.

That plan looks good! Glad you are putting thought and care into what you are doing.
Also, I highly doubt your snake is going to try and eat rocks, so I’d say its fine to put some little rocks in there for decor
