Re: very strange behavior of my python

Personally kept a garter snake when I was 7 or 8...back when hot rocks were recommended. It wrapped around the hot rock and was severely burned. I don't care what viperkeeper says or does, I think it is a stupid choice to use a hot rock based on my first hand experience. I also agree with the above posters. No a snake will not move to avoid being burned...sometimes they will coil around a bulb...why do you think people put a guard around heat bulbs? Also, like zig kind of hinted to...I think you're overthinking a lot, Kazz. Provide proper temps, humidity, water and security (hides), feed accordingly, and let the snake be a snake.
