Lol, motion-detection camera. You picked the wrong type of snake for that. (said in jest, but there is definitely some truth in it.)

I have some sandboas too, not johnii, and I have some children's pythons. I can look into the python cages during the day and very rarely see them crawling. Yet, when I place some wine corks in the cage upright as indicators of snake movement, I can walk out of the room for 20 minutes, come back, and the corks are all knocked down but the snakes are again hiding. Those pythons are sneaky little buggers, and they have learned my patterns quite well.

My sandboas on the other hand will leave corks intact for days sometimes. For sure they are mostly lie-in-wait snakes.

Corks - my cheap motion detector. I finally found a use for them besides BB gun targets. God knows I have many corks.
