    Snake pooped foreign object (undigested rodent?)

    I fed my ball python on March 1, and she took the next 1-2 weeks to shed (skipped 1 meal), and now its 12 days later. Her humidity stays around 55-65% and her cool side temp is high 70s while her warm side is high 80s. Shes 3 months old and eating fuzzy rats. Shes maintained a hard lump near her vent for 5 days now, so I thought Id give her a warm bath. Upon gently messaging the bump area, she eventually expelled something that I cant quite distinguish. It is very hard and has a thin clear opaque layer over it. Should I be concerned, and any help would be appreciated.

    Probably just a urate "stone"....be sure to keep her adequately hydrated (maybe raise her humidity, especially during shed cycle). Lucky it came out OK- that was a
    good move, giving her a warm bath, but do be careful when "massaging" out a stone (best prevented) so as not to have a prolapse.

    We have 2 new to us ball Pythons. Our smallest pooped out one of these about a week after getting him. We are going on week 3 of ownership. 3 days ago we got a solid brown poop.

    Just normal urates with a little bonus (green stuff is bile, also normal). Congratulations...
