    My stimson python spends most of his time in his hide which is not on placed over his heat mat, as a result he feels cold to touch. Should I move his hide over the heat mat to warm him up, particularly now that he's back to feeding or is it nothing to worry about since its summer. Any advice would be AWESOME.:D

    Realistically you should have one on the top of heat mat and one on cold end

    Thanks Herptology, I'll sort it out and do the same for my BHP. Would it be better to get small hides so my snakes can curl up tightly in them?

    You want them to be as tight as possibl to feel secure e, for example all my snakes almost bulge out the side, which might be a little too tight but you get the point
