    It's food. See it when they have large feeds.

    it could also be follicle development... snakes begin to produce ther eggs before they are fertilised and as a result noticable lumps are formed before the female is even introduced to the male. this causes alot of failed breeding atempts because the breeder is not aware of this and think that their female is gravid and stop introducing the male before the oocytes (female gametes/eggs) are even fertilised. this may be unlikely as the female usually stops eating but it is possible
