    Have Sinaloans ever been known to climb trees, or are they totally ground dwelling? I know they may climb on fallen branches and such, but with their smooth scales it doesn't seem like they would be very good at climbing.

    Thanks,

    Now, back to your regularly scheduled program.

    I don't know that the feel/texture of the scales has anything to do with it. Our green tree pythons have the smoothest scales I've ever felt and they are master climbers.
    In my experience, if snakes want to climb, they can and will do it (especially if there is an escape route that way!)
    Even my fat ground-dwelling ball python tries to be a tree snake every now and then!

    Don´t know about trees, but they sure climb branches

    Coral also likes to inspect the "ceiling" of the enclosure. She squeezes a part of her body between the top screen of the terrarium and respective plastic support and then cruises around, facing down. Don´t have a picture, but that´s really funny.

    But, like Andrea says, she´s probably just trying to escape.
