    Some snakes just like doing this after a feed, she could also be coming up for a shed

    Often they're just cleaning themselves after eating. If she's still doing it in a few days, then it's an issue.

    Is your first aid up to date? Snakes only have one lung, but still respond well to CPR. Something to keep in mind.
