    If it was from the vent back you are lucky you didn't find out what it was doing while it was on your floor... lol
    I think it sounds like it was going to the bathroom... May-be a lil' constipated...??
    I don't know...
    I have some "?"
    Do you feed in the cage and on the substrate??
    What is the humidity?? And what kind of guage do you use...
    When was the last time your snake went to the bathroom...
    How much do you feed it...(how often and what size of prey.)
    Do you know if it is a female or male...
    Oh ya if you do feed it on the substrate then what type do you use...??
    That sould be good...

      ok, it was about a foot away from the vent where he was doing it. when i feed it i put him on the floor so he won't injest the wood chips. i think it was on sunday that he went to the bathroom last (i have two of them in the same tank so i can't really tell). i feed him 1 med. rat once a week and its a male
