So i've had my BTS Northern male for about 2 months and i've recently upgraded him into a 40 gallon terrarium but i've noticed now when i him which a lot more often sense he has gotten the bigger room. he doesnt flick his tongue out as often anymore and he breath like in a panic when im around right now. I moved him in about a week? is it normal for BTS northern to do?

Set up
40 gal Terrarium
Bedding Snake Aspen (Breeder had him on it)
Fed daily: Blue brand wet dog food with peas and sometimes fruit added in it i swap out the peas with greens and the meat flavor so he doesnt get bored O i add calcium in too
Lighting is a 75 watt inferred red bulb and a 75 watt basking heat bulb i swap the too between night and day.
2 hides one on that basking spot (where he normal is) One on the cold side
1 water bowl

Maybe you could post a picture of your setup? It sounds fine, personally I would not use aspen but that is a personal choice. I found it to be too dry even for my Northerns. He is more than likely still adjusting to his new surroundings.

I use coco husk, repti bark, cypress mulch or similar.
