    Between inadequate prey items, and obvious signs of stress I would recommend you to do this to a T https://ball-pythons.net/forums/show...-hatchling-101 and so so without any delay.

    If it's very active then it's probably under stress for some reason. A stress free BP is usually not very active. Keep doing research. This site almost exclusively helped me prep for getting our snakes and making sure they settled in well.
