Kenyan Sand Boa activity level?

I'm hearing a lot of "oh you'll just about never see him", but also "usually under the substrate", and even "out in the open a lot". There doesn't seem to be a solid answer so I guess I'll ask here.

How often does one see their KSB out in the tank? Is like you'll only see them at a certain time of day? Will I see it out and exploring every few days? Or will I catch a glimpse of him once a week?

I know the boards aren't very active in these parts so any answers are appreciated! Thank you!

My girl was shy when I first got her, but with a little handling she equates me with feeding and has turned into a monster always peeking or roaming in hopes I'll give her a fuzzy(or move in on tank mates fuzzy)... tank mate is also starting to follow suit as she's getting acclimated. Both are chill being handled. Male in separate tank is still skittish but new and is eating better so will start to handle and hopefully he'll follow suit. Just my experience but hope that helps. Females in 20l male 10...2 inches of walnut shell, cave hide, fake suction cup plants along wall... water dish other side by plants. Have fun!

I like the description you gave of your snakes' behavior, Mark, but please don't ever, ever feed snakes in the same enclosure. Not ever, not for any reason. The snakes will attempt to consume each other, and maybe not while you're watching. Snakes, and boas in particular, are very food driven, and are not at all intelligent, and will take a cage mate that smells a bit like a rodent to be a rodent.

Separate snakes for feeding, and keep them separate for at least 24 hours after.
