    Ooohh...that looks strange =(

    Well I was cleanning the water area and then I saw a little bump on the right side of my snake ...She acts normal, but that thing wasn't there...My little sister could not take a clean shot, the snake was moving too much.

    Maybe you know waht could it be I'm really worried about it.

    Now I know I've seen something like that before and I've heard something similar...but I can't remember how it turned out. Let us know what the vet says, hm?

    Might be some sort of liver problem but I think the liver is actually up a bit higher in garters...-drags hand down face- ...Ugh I can't remember.

    Hope it turns out alright.

    Hi Robert, it is hard to see exactly what we're looking at in that picture. I think a trip to the vet must be the wise course of action. In the meantime, can you post a clearer picture?

    It's a little bit hard to find vets for snakes aroud here, but I'll go on Monday to an Herpetology Lab from a University, they give their services to any person that goes and needs help. If they can't find the problem there is another clinic a little bit far from my house, speciallized on wild Mexican Fauna (already sounds expensive...lol)

    Here are a better shots

    So...bad news and good news.

    It was a worm parasite, so the fish were infected or something. Today she stayed for surgery.

    She's going to stay at the Herpetology Lab for a month, so 50 insulin syringes were asked. Yep she is gravid...so, I think that not all the babies are gonna be mine . Sad but true.

    I'm gonna visit her each week...hey they have no choice, that's why I'm paying for.

    All the members that feed their snakes with fish alive, beware of parasites, so the only way to get rid of them, is with frozen fish.

    Sorry to hear that Robert. But at least you caught the problem in time. Wise words about the frozen fish.
