 Starting to become a worried parent lol

Ok so last night I fed my baby bp for the first time since I got him about 6 days ago, but since then he is staying balled up and isn’t active at all. He will stay in his hide for a lil bit then he comes out slowly and curls up in the corner, I’m just wondering if this is normal behavior after eating ?

He’s just digesting the meal he ate give him about 5-6 days to fully get it down his system then I would recommend taking him out for a good couple of minutes so he get into the habit of being in his owners hands since you got him a couple days ago

you usually don’t want to handle snakes 24-48 hrs after a meal. Also, it is very normal for ball pythons to just stay curled up for days.
