    How many hours out of 24 should a bp spend sleeping? I know this will vary by snake, but any ideas of a general number?

    I'd probly have to say 22.5 hours are sleeping. But I'm not sure what they do deep into the night. I woke up this morning to see Monty cruising around his cage, maybe they are more active then we think.

    Depends on if it's a teen-aged BP. Based on my teen-aged son, you can expect massive amounts of time spent either sleeping or otherwise inactive.
    We do not quit playing because we grow old; we grow old because we quit playing.

    LOL HOOMI...
    I would say that they spend 5-6 hours cruising around their cage off and on throughout the night. I monitor mine sometimes when I am up to all hours of the night, and they usually "wake up" or "become active" around 8-9pm and don't stop until about 12-1am. Then they rest a bit, come back out from about 5-7am. But then of course we can't forget about when they are hungry and restless, taking a swig, moving from cold end to warm end, etc. throughout the day that we don't see. So in other words- who really knows?? LOL
