    Aw, ****. Took this picture about a week ago, didn't notice anything weird then.



    The mouth isn't supposed to look like that, is it? It looks worse in that picture than in the ones I took today, but I can see it in real life as well now that I know to look for it.

    No, but they both went off feed at the same time, didn't think much of it. I'm sure that she's eaten after that appeared in the photos.

    They've had paper towel substrate for the past two months or so, I don't believe it's because of substrate getting stuck. Broken tooth maybe, I think she hit the tweezers some time ago.


    edit: I posted a picture of them on the 24th, I can see it in that photo.

    Understood, but this doesn't seem to go away.


    edit: The first picture where I can see it in, was taken on April 10. It has definitely eaten after that.

    Is it the same snake that has the fused scales? It could just be a minor deformity. Hitting the tweezers could damage teeth of course, but surely that would have healed by now. If there's no sign of 'mouth-rot' I wouldn't worry, Stefan.

    No, it's the other one and it's a new thing. Definitely didn't look like this a month ago.

    I sort of took this as a sign of mouth rot. I tried gently to get it to open its mouth, but it wouldn't cooperate.
