Olive python care?

So, Olives have been a dream for about five years now but now I feel that I could work and manage one. Here in lies the problem, how to care for them? Lucky I have been researching their care for a while now, just the variation in what’s recommended is kind of the issue. I even have looked up their geo range to find some weather data. It kinda reminds me of rocky outcropping with some foliage but not like a bone dry desert, actually pretty humid 50% - 70%. As far as basking temps go, I have heard 82-92, but would probably go with 86-87 with a natural gradient.

So how do you guys keep your hotspots? Ambient temperatures? What’s your average humidity?
