    Can snakes be time aware? When you feed them once a week, do they eventually know what day it is? Spectre never used to act any different on feeding day, but the last few times, as soon as it's feeding day, he's out by the afternoon acting all excited...or at least very energetic about he knows what's coming hours before we ever even thaw his dinner. Silly question, I know, but I was wondering if other snakes do the same thing...

    With consistency snakes will become cognizant of schedules. Mine definately become more active as feeding time approaches.

    I agree, I'm looking around the room now and 3 out of 4 heads are poking out of their hides. (the rats/mice/pinkies are thawing in the kitchen.) lol

    Oh yeah definately.. snakes will usually become more active as it approaches feeding day simply because they are hungry and searching for food! But I have noticed some of ours do act differently on feeding day - they are even more active, and just seem to know that its "that time" again! Even when we haven't got the food thawing. I'm certain its because they are time aware.

    This is kind of irrelevant, as im talkin about a monitor......but my Savannah knows the big blueish green bowl's presence is an indication of chow time

    Same with Tolkien my beardie, when he sees the tub and tweezers with worms in he gets all excited, and runs up to the cage doors :)
