Rehousing snakes

Post by St3ve76 on Tue Aug 11, 2009 7:27 am

This is my first time rehousing my snakes from my under bed storage containers into viv's with glass front.
The 3 snakes that have been moved are very aggressive since I moved them and strike at the glass quite regularly. 2 are young king's and one is a corn which was very placid.

Is this normal ? Anyone else have these problems

there not used 2 so much hight and also they have a better view of ya now through the glass. what i normal do when moving snakes is a bit of fish tank back round across the glass then start 2 reduce how much of the glass is covered over about 2 weeks till theres none there

Cheers Fitzy for the advice but had the temp's settling for 3 days before i put the snakes in.
The corn has settled a bit she even let me handle her last night without rattling her tail.
The King's are still being strange but wil let them settle for another week.

Just a wee update after leaving the snakes to settle in for a few weeks everything seems to be back to normal.
I guess the new surroundings just got them a bit nervous.
