    You said itís like looking at cages with hides in .... I presumed you meant that you had periods of simply not seeing them .... Thing is if thereís branches and nooks and crannies they will explore and climb in the evenings ..

    Re: My hiding baby burmese

    thanks for the info. i need to take some of the bedding out of the tank. i think smoothed out there is about 1 and one half inches of bedding in there which i guess is causing the trouble. ill take it out. where do you get butcher paper. i guess i need to get some since i don't take a newspaper or if you think its ok i'll just use the bedding but less of it.

    Burmese Python 101 answers all your questions. I even provided you links to products.
    PS: You should handle Baby Burms during shed. You need to suit up and get going so that he will allow you to handle him at anytime, even at 12 feet. Forgive me if Iím wrong but I think your very nervous about him. You have every reason I can think of not to touch him. Put the gloves on and a long sleeve shirt if you need to and start working with him. Believe me when I tell you your cooking up a recipe to have a defensive Burm because the longer you wait the harder it will be. This age is when he needs to be conditioned.
    Go have fun and stop allowing him to control his handler. Make this a challenge that will be rewarding for you. Here are the links from my thread on where to buy things.

    Hey Zinc, my point was sometimes they will hide, and not be seen for a day or two. And other days they hang in the open without a care in the world. Of course thereís always some night time action, unless itís after a meal or during a shed. And increased activity a day or two before feeding. This time of year they all will hang in the open for long periods. And I keep my set up in a traveled area, they have all become more then comfortable. Itís nice because even my teen daughters will occasionally take interest. I was originally concerned about their location, but they adjusted very well. I thought you also stated you kept yours in an easily seen location, and yours adjusted well also. I feel very fortunate to have them part of my living room. Being able to see them multiple times daily vs a snake room or trip to the basement is way nice.
