 Boa type? Pics!

Hey guys so about a year ago i got this little guy and was told he was a redtail, then i was told he was a mix between a kahl albino and a pastel, then at a checkup a few days ago i was told he could be a hogg isl.....can you guys take a look at the pics and tell me what you think?

also i just changed the bedding to aspen and now he stays burrowed in almost all the time, is this normal?

They burrow for security.

Also, looks like a normal BCI.

Do you have enough hides in the tank? Also, with Aspen bedding you may find you need to set up a "Humid hide" with some dampened spaghnem moss if you find the humidity drops.

Pretty snake- but I concur. Looks like a BCI to me ( though Im not as good at typing them as others on this forum)

well i have 3 hides, a half burried/open ended log, another tunnel log in the middle and a rock cave with moss inside and outside with leaves over but he never seems to want to go in any of them, he used to but once i changed to aspen he began burrowing
