I purchased a baby columbian boa at an expo this saturday. I know that the show was fairly stressful for the snakes.
I know it's only been three days but, I have a question about what type of behavior is typical or atypical for a new snake.
The first day she was out a lot, exploring. The past two days she has been sleeping a lot in her plant that's in the tank. All of that is fine, but what I am concerned about is that sometimes at night, when she wakes up, she does this thing that is very odd...
She braces her head and neck on the corner of the tank and just stares upward for very long periods of time. Is this normal? Is this bad? Should I be concerned? I have been leaving her alone, so as to not stress her out more, but she is still doing this after three days. Is this behavior related to her being stressed out?
what types of behaviors are "normal" or typical of new boas from these shows?
