Question on behaviour of my Boa

I noticed that my new albino het boa that I got 2 days ago hasn't been using the inside of his warm hide.
Also he would every so often go to the cool corner of the tank and curling up for a bit.

Should I worry for its health?

No you should not, be sure you give it enough privacy to settle in though. Lurking outside the tank checking up on it constantly doesn't allow it to properly settle in.

My girl spends a lot of time at the cooler end. She's 20mo and in excellent health.

Re: Question on behaviour of my Boa

maybe get two of the same hides on each side. some say if there's two different she might pick a favorite cuz it's more safe or just cause. so than she'll go to it even if she wants to be the opposite temp. i have identical hides on hot/cold side and she moves around freely in both

Don't worry about it, I have a boa that uses her hot hide regularly and another who pretty much spends all of his time at the cool end of the enclosure. What are your temps?
