My ball python (otto) has not shed yet, (her stomach got all pink and her eyes fogged a while ago) and she has been breathing like really hard. She keeps on taking these hudge breathes every 5 seconds. My dad is conserned, how would I know if she is sick. Her tounge is flickering and she is very active and everything, so im just not sure uf she is ok. :confused:

A lot of snakes will "go blue" and then their skin will look clear again for a few days before they shed. I'm not sure what to tell you about her breathing, but if you are concerned about shedding, make sure the tank is a little humid (May help with the breathing for a Ball Python too) and if you want to, soak her in about an inch of slightly warm water for 10-20 minutes.

Good luck, keep us posted!

Is she wheezing?Are her eyes still 'foggy'? Has her skin started to shed at all? We really need more info to try and help you. If she is having respiratory problems, however, it is something that will defnitely need to be dealt with quickly.
