I dont know why your snake would be doing that. Stress maybe.
Just a question for you. What made you decide to get a columbian red tail? You do realize how big they get dont you? Just strikes me odd that you wanted a "king, corn or smaller boa" in your last post, and now you have a red tail. I just hope your not posting on here again in a few months saying you want to trade this one in on something smaller and end up getting an anaconda.
: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?
