    Re: My snake had something stuck in his butt.

    I let him sit in the females tub for 5 minutes since I didn't want him locking and when I got him out he was a COMPLETELY different snake. No thrashing, just calmly smelling and looking around. Something tells me the behavior he was showing is going to show in some of the human males after a few weeks of quarantine haha.

    Keep in mind that in some state while not providing proper food, shelter etc falls under animal cruelty but some states take is a step further and withdrawing withdrawing necessary veterinary care also falls under animal cruelty.

    So some food for the thoughts, not only withdrawing care can be illegal but it is also not the right thing to do.

I get that it wasn't too detailed, but sometimes it's hard to describe what's going on.
    Just to clarify - Deb wasn't trying to be rude - just honest.

    I'm glad you seem to have found a solution - the only one I could think of was popping it and trying a water spray - which you thankfully didn't need to do.

    @Gocntry, I've heard that a roughly 50/50 mix of eco-earth and Forest Floor work very well.
