Too large of a tank for a small snake can cause stress. It's best to use a smaller size and upgrade as the snake grows. Sometimes you can use a divider, but snakes are sneaky and will more than likely get ontop of or under the divider to get to the other side.
They usually yawn after eating to re-adjust their jaws. Typically, yawning 3 or more days later isn't bc of eating. It's bc the snake needed to yawn.
Putting tanks in front of a window can cause changes in the temperature of the tank bc it's on an outside wall. The only thing you can do is carefully monitor the temperatures using a good thermometer, not a stick on one. You'll need to carefully adjust the temps as needed.
