Thanks for the reply (Festive duty prevented me getting back sooner!)
My hot end temps are around 83* with the cool end down around mid 70's, with a 10* night time drop. These are the temps I've always kept my pits at, and the ambient temps of the room they roam in is generally 70* F or there about. The snakes occasionally take themselves back for a warm, before re emerging to continue on the mooch, but not that often.
No sign of mites or any other ailments.
After shedding his behaviour has eased off slightly, and as I'm off for the holidays I can let him out for far longer so his damage hasn't gotten any worse. Hopefully by the time I go back to work the urge will be waning.
Although all my vivs are packed with branches and hides, I do like the idea of tubing as subterranean hides, and think I will introduce these to them all!

Thanks, Paul.
