Coastal Carpet sleeping under aspen bedding.....
Hi Everyone my 7 month old coastal carpet python has just recently been put into his new enclosure which has around 1.5 inch deep aspen bedding. Ever since he was put in he dug him self right under the bedding and stays under it 97% of the time. Is there a reason he is doing this ? ? ?
Thanks AussieCollection: 2 x Coastal Carpets, 1 x Jungle Jag Carpet, 1 x Hypo Bredli Carpet

Because snakes like to hide. It's perfectly normal.

most snakes seem to prefer small tight cramped places to hide, they will pick somewhere they feel safe and secure, there are lots of keepers who have put 'larger' hides into an enclosure only to find that the resident will stick with the 'one size too small' version and wind up lifting the hide off the ground... He feels comfortable under the aspen, just make sure you know where his head is at when you go and stick your hand in there, they love a good game of hide and freak the owner out...READING GIVES YOU KNOWLEDGE, ....
