  • LESS ACTIVE NORMAL?

    I have a 7month old rt boa. Great eater, great disposition. Very friendly. When i take him out of the tank he is very active. When i put him back into the after a while he just hides in his cave only sticking his head out when he is hungry. I have had him checked out twice. He is healthy. Just wondering if is this normal. Would more circulating air in the tank make him more active? He doesn't even explore the tank anymore. I feed him 3 jumpers every 7 to 9 days. is this too much?
    thank you

    Going by the age [ PLEASE check with the girth also though] try feeding your snake 1 small rat that is about two weeks of age. It could be that your snake is doing this due to it needing to take more time to digest ALL of the food/prey that you are giving it to eat at a feeding. Snakes digest one prey item at a time basically. So when you feed them 3 prey items at a feeding.. It takes awhiole for their digestion of the whole meal to finish. When snakes are digesting.. they basically seek out a warmer area to lie there and digest their meal.
    OH and also feed the snake every 7 days with that rat size I gave you also. Should be feeding one appropriately sized prey item at a feeding in most cases. The rat will give the snake more in the area of nutrition than a mouse [ took your jumper reference to mean a hopper mouse..could be wrong though..]
