    Yup. It's normal. I have a 7 month old BCI that comes out at night and likes to hang out in her vines. Matter of fact she's still there now. During the day she comes downand sleeps in her hide, but what you've got is normal behavior.

    As has already been mentioned young boas like to climb - in the wild its a method of hiding from ground-dwelling predators.

    yeah good point, I just assumed there would be hides, you should have a hide in the basking area, and in the cool area, so it can thermoregulate securely.

    Yeah young boas tend to spend a lot more time climbing than adults, think they feel more secure up in the branches.

    He will find the heat when he needs it, what are your ambient temps?
