    Today I noticed my snakes right side of his lower lip was sorta curved in he ate 3 days ago so it couldn't of been that and it was fine till today. He did bite me earlier but was a regular bite. He let go straight away but that's the only thing I can think of that caused this it's normaly fine and semetrical. What could it be?[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    The lip is probably just hooked up on a tooth. It will sort itself out.

    Sort of off topic, but what are those little black dots on the underside of mouth? Look like Mites but could be bedding

    On topic, it’s nothing to worry about (the lip bite ), my baby does it aswell

    He has just shed and the little dots are in the same spot, could it still be mites or would they have some off with the shed?

    If you touch them they’ll move, they should have come off with the shed, however if they’re in the EXACT same spot I wouldn’t think they’re mites

    Another sign is if he tries to submerge in water

    Some carpet pythons may naturally have black spots on their faces as part of their pattern.

    they haven't moved at all I've tried will my finger and a damp paper towel but they are still there. yeah thats what I was thinking as they would be on the skin and come off with it not under the skin. I've never seen him soak himself so he's not irritated at all by mites.
