    They can be all sorts of shades,brown to green and sometimes just looks like fur balls. as long as it doesn't smell any different than normal, then I wouldn't worry too much.
    I'd just double check everything temps and humidity , just to put your mind at rest

    I mean it smelled but it wasnít a horrid smell. It didnít smell like poop because she only pooped urates since she is only eating twice a month.

    It's pretty normal, not to worry.

    That's hilarious, the way his beautiful boa just won't stay still- like he's determined to steal the show.

    He finally gets around to discussing "color" around 10:00, btw.

    In noting the way many snakes defecate as soon as we clean their cages he makes an interesting point, that maybe boas are "marking their territory" this way? Personally, I think it's more likely that it's just the activity & minor stress of interacting with us that causes them to "go" (& NOT some evil desire to mess up what we just cleaned, either, lol), so if you ever think your snake might be constipated because he hasn't gone in a while after eating, keep in mind that even before you try giving them a "soak", try handling them a bit more first. Just don't put on your finest dry-clean shirt when you do.

    I love his dry sense of humour too, just so funny
