    Awake during day

    My ball python (Syd) has been awake during the day. Not roaming, he just sticks his head at the entrance of his hide. I donít know if this is because the past two feeds Iíve been giving him them whilst the lights were still on, but only a couple of minutes before they go off during the evening.

    Ball pythons are ambush predators, mine often sleeps like this with just his head poking out I believe they do this invade something comes along and will make a tasty snack, as they are opertunistic ambush predators in wild who usually hide in rodent burrows.

    I only ask the question because Iíve only notice him do it whilst Iíve fed him with his lights on. Heíll take it about two minutes before they go off an starts eating/swallowing it when theyíre off.

    Went and checked him and sprayed around the viv. As soon as I opened the glass door he just sprung out.

    Hard to tell if snakes are actually awake, but if he isn't sleeping, maybe his meals have been a little too small & he's hungry. (or just wanting more than he
    really should have, like many of us?) Normal for BPs to rest peeking out of their hides anyway...optimism.

    Awake during day

    He will gladly sleep all day like that itís just in case any food comes along they can grab it.

    Heís 660g and I feed him 60-80 gram weened rats but if he thinks thereís food still he will gladly try and find it the greedy thing

    Just upped his food to small rats, surprised he actually took them. Theyíre reasonably bigger than his previous meals.
