Not really...she will use the hot side mainly to aid in digestion. What type of heat...lamp (above) or bottom heat...

No, you'll find that she's gonna be extremely random in choosing sides. There is no pattern to it, but when she gets cold enough she'll go warm up. Or like Denny said, when she eats a good meal and has to digest it.

Ball pythons are more desertous creatures than boas, so that's understandable
