Re: very strange behavior of my python

Ok. I solved the problem and now she stays in her warm hide
So how did I do it ?
I closed side entrance to her hide and made it on the upper side. That's it.
1st Version. And now I don't know maybe it was too hot to breath ? When entrance is on upper side the air is moving from heater inside her hide through upper entrance. I don't think the snake is so stupid to don't find upper entrance if she want to go out ?
2nd Version. Version 1 can't be really truth bc she didn't just lay her head of part of her body outside making easy to breath. She was moving to glass again.

Re: very strange behavior of my python

Well it's time for update.
She act herself the same way. Stay at daytime on branches, after going into her hide she com back to ram a glass ((
I can't direct her to hide-box every morning and closed her to prevent escape from her hide-bot to get warmth.

Re: very strange behavior of my python

Kazz- What behavior is your snake displaying that you think is abnormal? If she has proper heat, food, water and hides she should be fine. I could be wrong but it sounds to me like you're trying to direct her to where you think she should be.

100%.

I see no problem here. You're obsessing over things that don't matter. Give the snake proper space, proper hides, proper temps, and proper humidity. Feed when needed, clean when needed, handle at your pleasure, and that's it. ANYTHING else is overthinking things. At this point I am not sure what you're looking for. Of course it will exhibit slightly different behaviour when you make changes to husbandry or it's cage. Once again normal.

Winter is coming. The temperature can drop to 16C (as nocturne snake she lost her body's warmth at night ). It's Ok if snake will get a warmth during her sleep at day. But she don't go sleep and she don't get a warmth.
She will catch RI!

Actually carpet pythons get till 10C wile breeding and it's ok if they get warmth at day.

I didn't change something. Just replace one cardboard hide-box to another on the same heat pad.

It's still fine. You do a great job of providing everything your snake needs now let the snake do it's thing. It knows when it needs heat and doesn't and will find it when it does.

This is like me going "well it's noon so it's lunch time and I proceed to shovel food into your mouth even though you tell me you aren't hungry because I know best. I know what you need/when you need it. Your body doesn't know." This is what you're doing to your snake.

I always found snakes don't like new hides and refuse to use them for a week or so after changing them.

Re: very strange behavior of my python

If you provide the proper heating gradient the snake will use them as needed. I'd keep those ambient temps above 16C and closer to 23C during the winter months. As long as she has access to a hot spot at all times, or at least during the day, she should be fine. I give my carpets a hot spot year around but my temps do drop some during the winter and I feed them less.

How long can a python be without heating with no risk to get RI ?

It will be 18-22C in a room. It don't depends on me unfortunately. Last winter was her fist winter and she was fine. But she got warmth every day time.

...that changes a spot in the cage where they are supposed to feel secure, so yes you did.

If proper temps/husbandry is provided, this won't occur. With proper husbandry snakes will not make themselves sick. Your snake knows what it needs better than you do. That is what everyone is trying to tell you.
