Hello, let me first start off by saying since I'm new here that I have been a snake hobbiest for many years. I currently have about 15 species of snake, and 14 lizard. Ok, so this was strange to me, so I hope someone can help. I had my redtail out today and went to my friends. She's about 7-8ft atm. I was holding her and she was acting normal as also. The. On one tongue flick it was like she had a foam covered tongue. It fell off and I freaked out. I checked her mouth, not red, no inflame. She did seem to have extra saliva, but nothing crazy. She was fine for a bit, then seemed to have drool on the side. It was thick though, like not water thin. (If that makes sense). So I again checked, all looked normal. I brought her home, rinsed out her mouth and put her back in her cage. I also added an extra heat sorce for now on her. What I'm wondering is, can a snake randomly do this without it being RI? Could she have possible flicked her tongue into something and her mouth was just trying to naturally wash itself? Has anyone ever had anything like this happen and it wasn't RI related? I've seen snakes with RI many times, and this doesn't look the same as those have. Thank you all for replies and help.
