Hognose Upset?

    Hello all!

    I am a first time snake-owner, and I got a baby Western Hognose a little over a week ago. Pretty sure it's a male, 6-8 inches, I fed him a pinky after five days and everything went alright seemingly. He hasn't ever hissed or tried to strike at me, and is fairly active both in the enclosure and when I'm holding him. I was holding him today, and everything seemed alright at the time. After I put him back in the cage, I noticed him drinking about an hour later and stopped to watch. He crawled around for a bit, pooped, and then suddenly regurgitated a bunch of water. Is this a thing that happens, or should I be concerned? Is there anything I can and/or should do?

    How many times do you handle him each day? Over handling can possibly lead to regurgitation.
    I wouldn't be worried if it happened once.
