    Since shedding 3 weeks ago Boris has gronked 3 medium rats in the last 2 weeks.
    I also provided a larger ceramic heat emitter in his den. Its a balmy 35 at the hot spot at the end of the day.
    Thinking I might need to construct a bigger "deeper " hide.Because the current one might be a bit small.
    I offered him the last rat 2 nights ago. He was snuggled up under the hide and didn't seem keen.So I wriggled the rat up and down a bit and hassled him with it ie touched him with it-well talk about "don't make me mad you won't like me when I'm mad" . He started hissing like I've never heard and the whole hide which is a large ceramic tile with wooden "legs" lifted up and was basically shrugged off. I left it in there and when I went back 10 mins later to check he was up in the branch in full hunting posture eyeing the rat ravenously. I left it overnight and by morning it was gone.
    I have 3 of those hides in there so he has plenty of room to hide. He fits completely under one out of sight.
    Area wise he has plenty of hide but depth or height wise maybe needs more-any thoughts?All advice much appreciated.
    cheers.
    looking very handsome after shedding

    You left a rat in here ? Noop haven't seen it.

    The hide is just at the bottom of the pic -300sqmm tile .
    I cut some smaller ones for our Spotted Python which you can see here. Made sure to smooth off all sharp edges-still rough but not sharp. She has a triple decker and quite often chills out on the second level.
