    Well I was wondering whether his pushing was breeding season related or husbandry related. He just left a white sticky answer smeared across my hand.

    Thanks for the "visual"! Always nice to get an answer though...

    Update: All seems to be well now. It's been a few weeks since he's done any pushing, though it lasted a lot longer than i would have hoped. Thankfully his messed up nose didn't require anything more than some antiseptic flushing and silvadene, although that was very unpleasant. All thats left is a slight bump and some damaged/worn scales and he's in blue now so I'm eager to see how it looks underneath (see picture). Strangely, now he seems more subdued in his cage than ever. Maybe I'm just not remembering accurately after such a long time, but i feel like he used to roam around a bit at night, now he's pretty much in his hide 24/7. Out of his viv he's his same old self, but i don't know?

    Snakes that are "in blue" typically stay in their hides. It just doesn't pay (in terms of long-term survival in the "real world") to meander around with greatly
    reduced vision...they can't see well enough to catch food & would more likely get hurt trying, plus avoiding risks would be even more difficult. You'll have to
    wait until he sheds to see if he has really stopped pushing his nose. Fingers crossed for ya...

    Thanks for the crossed fingers, I'm most worried for next season to be honest. I should have been more clear, he's been calm for weeks now but just went onto blue a few day ago. Again, i really cant even remember if this activity level was the norm for him before the pushing began this fall.

    Update: Fresh shed

    Compared to last shed, I am quite pleased with his healing. His nose is still not as pretty as usual, but I am sooo relieved to see how much progress its made! Last shed was 2/28, current pics are from today.
