    Single Bubble From Mouth

    Hi guys, when checking on all of my snakes, one of them had a single bubble blow out of her mouth. She has no signs of an RI otherwise, she is eating super well, very alert, no head raising, no clicking or wheezing. I refrained from opening her mouth because she had a pretty large meal a few days ago and didn't want to risk causing a regurge. Is this a common thing to happen in healthy snakes? I've never seen it before. And her husbandry is exactly where it needs to be.

    I wouldn't say it's commonly SEEN, but then again, even if you live with lots of snakes like I do, I don't manage to watch their every waking moments. Honestly,
    it sounds like a bit of saliva from the recent meal, which you also said was on the large side (or maybe even a tiny bit of reflux?) but stay vigilant "in case". And
    it's usually better to feed snakes on the small side.

    I normally feed her less but one of the other snakes didn't eat and she was still looking for food so instead on throwing away the ft rat and gave it to her. She won't be eating for a couple weeks now since it was more than she normally eats.
