    My girlfriend recently obtained a young female bull snake. I was wondering if any other snake owners on the forum could help me with her questions she has.
    1. How long should she wait to feed after the snake has been placed into its new enclosure?
    2. How long should it take the snake to come out of hiding and destress?
    3. The temperature is 93 in the tank, could this be the reason why she is hiding?

    1. I would let it settle in for at least a week sometimes 2 but offering food is not gonna harm it
    2. Most snakes like to stay hidden most of the time its normal
    3.93 a lil bit hight not terrible though.. do you have a cool side ?
    4. Pics are always nice
    Good luck!
