K so I got a female ball python 7 weeks ago and I forgot to ask what substrate they were keeping her on when I picked her up. She still has not pooped I have been giving her warm baths to try and get her to deficate but all I have gotten is a couple of small urates. How long is too long to go without deficating? I can't remember the size of tub she is in. Newspaper substrate. Temps are 87 plus or minus a couple of deg. Measuring temps with a acu-rite digital thermometer. Humidity floats around 57% She is eating small F/T rats. So far she has eaten twice for me and without hesitation the previous owners said that she refused f/t for them I'm thinking that they just didn't heat them well enough. She is definitely swollen at the back 1/4 of her but I don't feel anything hard so I'm not convinced that she is impacted.
