Banded Rock Rattlesnake Not Coiling, As Usual

I never really put it together until now, probably since I’ve been keeping one of these for about a month now for education work (yes, licensed and legal) – I have never seen a banded rock rattlesnake in the tight coil that’s usually characteristic for rattlesnakes. Lot’s of these S shapes, or loosely spread across the rocks, but that’s it. The one I keep at home does the same; many poses, none of which circular. Has anyone else noticed this?
