Unless you are keeping the room in which the snake's tub is housed in at a steady 28c 24/7 then your husbandry is wrong. This could be the reason the snakes behaviour has changed. All boa's and pythons species that originate from the tropics need a warm air environment. I would also go as far as suggesting you replace the tub with a suitable size wooden vivarium and fit a guarded ceramic heater controlled by a pulse proportional or dimmer stat. Granted if you are quarantining the snake then this with a paper substrate will reduce humidity, so a large water bowl or regular misting when in shed may be needed until such time the paper can be swapped out for something like beach or coco husk chippings which tend to hold humidity better. Giving the snake cover and a true photo period for a day / night cycle might calmer the snake down
