generally the rule for most snakes is 1square foot of space per foot of snake. Thin snakes kinda break that rule and you can do slightly smaller than that. The bamboo ratsnakes are a good example of something that can go slightly smaller, and same with a redtail rat snake. Of course, if you want either of these heh prepare to live with it for 20+ years and get bit a lot heheh
