Does your ball python do strange things at times? If so, what strange things does it do? Smile

Seems to yawn 10-20 minutes after I take him out after he settles down, also earliar today I saw him moving his head kinda weird, rubbing it along the side of his dish and pushing it against the glass.

Mine ha a very odd ritualistic pattern, I'll put him around my neck he'll lye there for awhile, then he proceeds to go down my shirt through the neck of my shirt or the sleeve and curls up on my belly. If I lift my shirt to look at him he lifts his head and tilts it looking up at me as if hes about to raise an eyebrow

I would check him for mites. I had a snake that rubbed his head and found mites causing him grief!

I've looked very closely on numerous occasions, can't find any mites at all.

Mine lives in his climb tree. He nestles in on the top branch and the screen, which is a pain for me to open.

They ARE hard to spot and if they are living under the scales..harder still. I always give mine a shot of Reptile Relief..just for preventative measures. Cool

Even if they are under the scales wouldn't you be able to spot them on the outside as well? Mine does that same head thing right after eating... I have put her under a scope and do not see any type of mite or movement.... Deb, is the spray you mentioned a preventative only or is it a cure for mites as well?

Just looked up Reptile Relief and it is a cure as well....

i think with baby dax it's more personality than behavior, but i'll share anyway. he loves to lay in bed w/ me across my stomach and chest w/ his head on my shoulder like a baby when he gets bored there and moves his head behind my earlobe and flicks his tounge as if to give kisses. he really seems to be in tune w/ me. if some one else has him and i come in the room he instantly seeks me out and wants me and will settle for nothing less. he will also curl up while i'm reading w/ the t.v on and watchs t.v. or curls up on my arm while i'm typing and watchs the screen. i know you all are going to think i'm really crazy but it's true. all of my friend think he's spoiled rotten. but if you're going to have a pet why not spoil them. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
