    I can't speak for the morph being a factor, but young snakes don't have well-developed neck muscles yet, so don't assume it's a "wobble"...snakes aren't built to periscope very well, & young ones are just not strong enough to be good at it yet.

    Yes that is true, but mine was specifically a genetics question followed by and equal response.
    Your exterminator could also use chemicals that could cause the same symptoms but neither you or I mentioned that either.

    This is so great to know and I feel truly relieved. When I saw it the two times I was like...uh oh. It's so darn cute though when they periscope!
