For an adult female youd be looking at a 5x2x2 at the very least, bigger is always better.

Might be stupid, but snakes need UV lighting dont they i think? (i know your probably laughing but im just making sure lol), does it have to be on constantly?

Most people don't use UV for there snakes as most snakes are nocturnal, but some studies have shown that a lil UV can be beneficial from time to time.
So its a personal preference more than it is a necessity

If it's only a bit from time to time, I imagine that it would be sufficient to take your snake out during the day once in a while.

Neither do I, and Mike it should be enough to take them outside Alas it is often a bit cold here to take them
out for any prolonged period of time Crying or Very sad
But as I said I don't bother with UV. I may occasionally give my Western hognoses a bit of UV as they would experience low levels in the wild.
