Hey /an/. I have an mystery regarding my ball python I was wondering if you guys could help me out with. Basically I set up 2 different hidey homes for him, one with a heat pad set at 88 degrees Fahrenheit and one without a heat pad. I figured he wouldn't have to choose between security and the ideal temperature. Yet, even though the room is relatively cool he seems to prefer the home without the heat blanket. In fact, he seemed a bit cool to the touch when I picked him up from the cool home this morning. Does he not realize the other home is warmer? Is there some other problem causing him to use the cooler home? I'm also concerned it's a bit too dry for him, in case it has anything to do with this.
Pic related, his setup with the warmer side on the right and the cooler side on the left.
