What snake, how long have you had it and what is its diet?

Member Comment 6/15/2013 7:26:13 AM


Has the snake been eating? I heard of some liver disease creates the bile& it will be passed even if a snake isn't eating. From the photo it looks like just urine that green stuff. It could be a few different things though from parasites to an unhealthy digestive system. I would suggest going to the vet with a fresh fecal sample soon.

Is that from a snake? Looks like it's bird poop out on a deck???

I'd say yes vet, and asap.

That's some freakin' weird a$$ S%*@  Whenever I think that, I go to the vet :)

Bright colors such as green, orange and yellow indicate bile in the poo... Get him to a vet! He might be having kidney or liver problems!

Let us know what they find!

you really need to see a vet. The green stuff is either bile (digestive juice produced in the liver) or urine. But I personally think it's bile. Just make sure you go to a vet that is educated about herps and snakes!!!
