Well this isn't so true with my corns but it is for my ball python.

When my ball starts coming out at night like that it usually means she's "hunting". I use that as an indicator as to when she wants food and it works very well.

Maybe she's just looking to put on some springtime pounds and is "hunting"... almost postive corns are nocturnal too.


:Marcel,

:I thought of that but it was shot down when the temps just starting to drop again. Last few nights was in the 30's & 40's and she still didn't hide. she is just out crusing around her tank or sitting in the open, where as my male is in his hide until the night just like always.

::Eric,

::Is the temp rising where you live? It might be that in daytime in the hide temps get too high why she chooses to stay outside.

::Marcel (Holland)

:::For the last week or two my female has been acting different. most of the time she is in her hide until nightfall, then she will come out when not to many people are around and in the morning when I wake up she is gitting ready to go back to her hide if she is not already in it. But now she is out all the time, roaming around Or just sitting their. Is this normal? I was thinking it might be her in breeding mode since I have a male in the tank right below her, or just somethink to do with the seasons changing.

:::Any help is appericated and welcome

:::Thank you in advance to all who reply

:::Eric
