I woke to find my female Childrens Python upside down in her hide, I got her out to see if I could feel any folicles growing eggs. I couldn't feel anything, so after handling her for a while I found she would open her mouth wide like a yawn. I took the opportunity to chek inside her mouth and all looked healthy, she continued to open her mount on average once every minute. I took her to an emergency vet because this was over the long weekend and they thought she was a healty Python, that was an expensive exercise for no real help.

On Tuesday this week, I took her to see a Vet that handles Exotics. She said that she was concerned about some puffyness in the lower section of her body, she is a little overweight but not badly and she has always had good body condition. The vet mentioned that the puffyness could be a result of an infection causing her to retain fluid and can cause issues with her heart valves, she put her on a course of Antibiotics. I am now giving injections every 72 hours for 2 months.

My question is: Has anyone had something like this happen to their Anterasia's

When they look like there yawning too much it’s lack of oxygen(possible) she may have compaction ? Over fed(over time)Temperatures? Eaten something that is off? Dehydration That’s the best I can think of .man I hope everything goes well I have a childrens too I truly hope everything goes well.

Oh I just read your in the injections phase thoughts are with you and the childrens python good luck speedy recovery I love Anterisia they are tough .
