    I can't really think of one that lives on room temperature. Is there a reason they must live on room temperature? Because a heat mat + regulator don't really use much power.

    Garter snakes will do fine at those temps. I do give mine a low wattage heat lamp, but they will do fine without one. I have also heard that black milksnakes do well at lower temperatures.

    Garters are a good choice. Rubber boas can take cooler temps as well. 70-80 is perfect, and a little cooler at night is fine.

    I've kept rough green snakes at room temp with good results too. Only catch is that they need UVB and feed mainly on insects.

    I don't have direct experience but some of the asian rat snake species are suppposed to be kept cooler. They cost a pretty penny though usually.
