    Decided to do a little handling before I go home for christmas.

    I did hear her breathing, particularly when she was trying to get away the first minute or two. I'd like to hear your thoughts? But I dont think its RI. Maybe it was normally breathing or going to shed soon?

    Okay, after some research, it seems that retics are particularly heavy breathers? Freaked me out because I have never heard my other snakes breath, but I'm going with it being normal.

    Especially because I got up close and personal (clearly) and I did not see mucus or hear popping.

    Yup both of mine are very audible. On top of the heavy breathing, sometimes they makes a whistle you can hear from several feet away.

    So are both of mine. A hiss from a retic is also impressive.

    She shed today. I didn't realize she was in shed, but that explains why she was in her warm hide more than usual. There was one long piece, but it did break up quite a bit too; the humidity is 70%.
