Why would my ball python poop liquid?


Answer by  naputnam (454)

It could be from eating too many hairless mice or being cold, it could also be a parasite. Those are just some possibilities. Check temp (must be high 80s) and humidity. Do not use cedar shavings for substrate. Take it to a vet if it continues, or it will dehydrate.

Pythons only have one exit hole, so "poop" can vary with water content, as well as food content. It will also vary in color from white to yellowish to brown. Snakes commonly will poop when frightened or irritated. This poop is on average more watery as it is made to spray on the attacker.

Your ball pythod poops liquid when it urinates or pees. It does this a lot more than it ever will poop those solid things called feces.

Considering the species, it is likely caused by an intestinal parasite. You should take the snake to a veterinarian who deals with or specializes in reptiles. Check with a reputable pet store that keeps reptiles and ask who they use. Any reputable reptile dealer has a regular reptile vet.

maybe your ball python is actually peeing. You see the liquid and assume its poop because of its color. Smell it! Taste it! What does it seem like now?
