Invictus-I believe your snake comming to you at the end of the bed as a hide not as it's owner which it enjoys to be around. On a made bed it is wide open. So if your snake sees you in at the other end it goes towards you to hide and feel secure. It tried to put as much of its body against yours cause you should know snakes prefer close quarters and close hides so they can feel something on all sides. So I think you just misinterperted(sp?) your snakes natural instinct to hide for emotion.
Christina-You finding more then 1 snake under the same hide doesn't mean they are exactly social. Maybe it was just the best hide around or for body heat during the cool times in the moring?
