    I just started to hold my baby albino ball python and both times she opened her mouth almost like a long yawn. Both times I did take her out at night. I'm just wondering: do you think it was a yawn or some sort of defense? She didn't do it towards me and I'm new to ball pythons. Just trying to figure out what she was doing. Other than that, she is so calm and sweet. I love her to death.

    My BP does that sometimes when he's out too. Usually when he's watching TV. :)
    Since she seems calm otherwise, I would assume it's a yawn. (Or she's just stretching her jaws.)

    Funny thing was is that she was watching t.v. with me. :) haha

    Yawning is common... I was lucky once and got a half decent pic of my ball doing it after a meal. Yeah, if it was a strike, you would have known.

    I agree. They yawn to realign their jaws after eating and sometimes they just yawn. If it had been aggression it would not have been a wide open yawn, just a slight opening of the mouth and a hiss. Or nothing at all till they struck.
