    I have no reason to believe i have damaged my snake internally, but i noticed in his shed he had sperm plugs, and hes just over a year old. so i checked his cloaca. noticed some white snot like mucus. squeesed the base to what i would say wasnt dangerous and more white stuff came out. now my anxietys just worried that in the process of seeing if he was sexually mature already my anxiety is making me think what if i damaged him internally while finding the semen?
    -.- help plz

    From your description and with out seeing photos, i would be fairly confident in saying that the white stuff was just a bit of left over urate.

    I wouldn't be worrying, i can't imagine a gentle squeeze would do any harm. Does he seem stressed at all?

    i wouldn't be stressing, i think you would have had quite a reaction if you had hurt him.
