Hope you like my title. But seriously, has anyone gone to check in on their snake and find that he/she has pooped and the poop is, like, wrapped up inside the shed? I was surprised but she’s all good, just wondering if anyone else has seen this “phenomenon”
Yes @gina5678 the poop shed has happened to me with my CA boas on occasion. Actually I would rather they do this instead of pooping all over the place outside of their shed! Lol!
Yes it was quite convenient all rolled up and ready to bag up
Yes it is pretty common
Yeah, BPs really like to hold it until it’s time to shed.
There have been plenty of times I’ve seen owners get concerned because they start looking like little sausage butts just before shedding and then it’s a large bit fairly easy to clean mess when it’s conveniently wrapped to go xD
Though I did have a BEL once who shed and then finger painted her tub with poop. She and everything else needed a good scrub that day
OMG picturing your BEL with finger appendages painting and then frowning when she had to get a bath
Ohhh yeah our girl loves doing this. More than half the time it’s poop shed, prebagged and ready to clean up. I don’t like it because I like to roll out her sheds and make sure they’re complete, but I can’t fault her tidiness!
She just did one of these yesterday, some to think.
Didn’t had the luxury of getting them pooping like that.
Should be better if one of my BCI’s would do that because he thinks he’s Picasso or something.
I will keep an eye on it to see if it happens
@bdev That’s a hilarious description of your “Picasso” artist!
It happens when I am lucky, but most times I get a shed and a separate huge poop thats been waiting for the shed to come out
The little guy popped today but no shed. Luckily he does it at a good to clean spot so that’s nice.
Don’t know when he’s going in to shed because i just got him 1 week ago. So we just have to wait
All my ball pythons do it, but my big girl shed today and decided to use the large water bowl instead. I was thinking I would have to call one of those companies who do waste removal for the porta potties it was so bad.
Lol! I’m not sure which is worse! The water bowl way is pretty gross!
For real! My ball pythons have bigger poops than some of our dogs that obviously weigh way more
OMG! So true. They love to hold it. I also just had my Volta decide to finger paint her tub. Luckily, most of them are fairly neat though.
