    Re: Ri?

    He's done this like 20 times today. He's constantly doing it. He sits there like that for a while.

    Sounds like he may be trying to shed? What's his humidity like? Being too dry might cause the popping sounds you heard & also yawning, to loosen the
    skin around his face in order to shed. Try spraying him with water. The fact that his cage was too warm may have dried out his skin, making it harder to shed.
    (-do you know when he shed last?)

    As far as the pics above where he's stretching upwards...what's overhead? A screen top? If so, he might be wanting out, or the cooler air outside his cage
    that was overly warm (earlier).

    Various reasons for a snake to push with their nose: trying to shed, or debris stuck in nose or mouth, or wanting out of a cage (for food or better temps.).
    Your BP is fairly active...he doesn't appear to me to be snake with an RI...his restlessness is most likely hunger or shedding.

    Most start their BPs on hoppers- fuzzies are a bit small for hatchling BPs. Your snake is probably hungry.

    Re: Ri?

    Also do you know a reason why he was rubbing and putting his head under the substrate in that exact spot multiple times.

    It's best for their digestion -if you must feed 2 items- that you do so at the same time (within an hour of each other). While a fuzzy is very digestible, I cannot promise
    that if you feed another item now that it won't cause a problem -ie. your snake could regurgitate -"barf up"- both items & then have to wait longer to replenish digestive
    enzymes, making the whole situation a set-back rather than helpful. Also, since your snake should be eating a hopper but already ate a fuzzy, the 2 items together might
    be a little much for her stomach, so I'd wait a few days before giving that hopper. You might get away with doing that now, but you'd be taking a chance. Wait 3 days &
    if she seems hungry, offer the hopper then.

    Nope, I sure don't. Could be many reasons, most I've already told you anyway. Like trying to shed.
