Snake more docile then normal
I’ve had my ball python for around a year and the past few months whenever I’d come near his cage he’d come and look to see what’s happening I thought it was a feeding behaviour but he’s not aggressive when he does it. Is he scared or something?

Thank you for your question. If you feed your snake in its enclosure, versus a separate container, it may be associating your approach to its enclosure with feeding. So it approaches you, because it is anticipating getting something to eat.
If this is a problem, you can try to correct this behavior by placing it in a separate container when you feed it. After it has eaten and had a chance to calm down, you can transfer it back to its main enclosure.
