i have a female clown kingsnake, a cross between a gray banded and a nelson's milksnake who used to eat like a champ. over the last 6 months or so she has been progressively refusing feedings. i tried smaller mice and now giving her pinkies. she is about 3 feet long and age unknown. at her prime she was eating small mice, 3 at a time. i noticed that she had a lower abd mass, about 3in from her cloaca. i fed her the other day and i noticed that she vomited the mice. she is in shed and does have bowel movements. she is getting thin , but is still active. i do not know any reptile vets here in nyc, specifically manhattan, many say they are and then they mistake beardies for chameleons and i have certainly seen the worst diagnostic workups for dogs and other common animals. in any case, the mass is nontender, firm and painless. can a non bred, non brumated snake be egg bound as can lizards? or is this possibly a malignant tumor. no rectal bleeding and no evid of a bowel obstruction as stated earlier and it does not have the feel or consistency of a lipoma, soft mobile and nonfixed; it almost feels like a sarcoma, firm almost fixed. any ideas from the panel? any decent herp vets in manhattan?
