I'm certain that there is a thread like this somewhere here, forgive me for bumping or reposting, please.

I'm somewhat new to serious herp husbandry. I've had a store-bought red tail (who knows what variety) and a similar ball for some time now and about 6 months ago, I "adopted" two larger (5.5 and a 6') red tails.

My feeding tank has a hole in the top on one side, I figure it's no big deal because they're only in there for a small period of time. The male has figured out where this hole goes (FREEDOM!!).

I had him in there recently and I had turned the top around so the hole was on the other side. He kept poking at the side where the hole used to be and, eventually, found it on the wrong side.

How much memory do these guys have? If he can figure that out, are they trainable? SIT! Sit pretty! DANCE!!!!! That would be cool.

(Just to brag, I've attached a shot of a nice yellow Amazon Tree boa I got at the show in Hillsboro over the weekend)
