    Hi,
    I have a diamond python that I have noticed it’s head twitched yesterday.
    I’ve been sitting and watching it today and it’s head will twitch - not frequently.
    My other diamond pythons don’t do this and I have booked in to see the vet on Wednesday.

    Has anyone else experienced this?

    What tests should I be requesting from the vet?

    Thanks.

    Hi Hannobal
    Is the snake a pure diamond, or a diamond carpet cross ? If it has any jag mixed in , that twitch would not be unusual . Also Diamond Python Syndrome could be factor, but hopfully not.
    Best of luck.

    Pure diamond pythons, no jag at all.

    From what I understand, diamond python syndrome isn’t contagious? nor can be tested for?
