Default corn snake wont hide.....

my corn snake wont bloody hide its anoying the hell out of me....

evry time i look hes curld up ontop of his hide insted of in it, temps are fine 29 warm end, Dosnt seem him self either not as active as normal.

hes about 2 ft, kept on hemp reptile bedding (simular to aspen) think im gonna switch to papper towls for a while see if i notice a differnce..

my royal has the same substrate and is fine, sleeps all day comes out at about 11 untill early morning. corns enclosure is always clean as he likes to save his crap for my bed so it cant be that, plus i reguly spot clean..

any ideas?

He will sit were he is most comfortable, you should feel lucky that you get to see it through the glass. You could switch and see if its the substrate.

I have corns that will sit on top of their hides too... guess its just where they wanna be. I find it tends to be my 08s and 09s that do this more though.

Dont worry about it as others say so long as it's healthy whats the problem. I doubt if the substraigh has anything to do with it if your gonna change anything maybe get a different hide maybe it dont like the one it has

i wish my corn would spend more time out of her hides! I've heard that corns are generally nocturnal, but she takes the michael at times, not coming out til around 4am lol. I'd think myself lucky if i were you...
