    Fell off bed in the snake bag

    Iíve just done a quick clean, water bowl, new hides, etc. I put him in the snake bag that Iíve got for him, put him on my bed (heís in the bag) and sorted the viv out, when I went down stairs for a minute to get water for him an I heard a little thud an heíd fell off the bed, would it have done any damage to him?
    The fall wouldíve been about 20-23 inches & itís a carpet floor.

    I had read a study somewhere, and I apologize for the lack of proper citation here, but they had regularly witnessed BP's dropping from low tree branches in Africa. I imagine that a 2 foot drop onto carpet would be fine. Mine has actually pulled the "jump off the bed" move on me as well, for some reason it is obsessed with the edges of the bed, and pays no attention to the blanket caves, etc., but all was well afterward, he didn't even seem shaken by it.

    Agree with others...minor tumbles shouldn't hurt, but still best avoided. When bagged, snakes still try to crawl somewhere & end up going over the edge of a bed-
    put the bag in a box of some kind, it's easy to prevent.
