Thank you for your input, joeysgreen and kelly haller.

Luckily, the snake has been acting completely normal the second half of yesterday, and all day today. We got him to eat two pinkies yesterday! He hasn't been acting twitchy at all since the 12th. I believe that he was acting that way because of too much PAM sprayed. He was sleeping most of the day on the 13th, and half of the day yesterday. I think this may have been because of the heat he was exposed to, or it could be because of the PAM. I have a video of the way he was acting, I'll post a link. He would twitch and curl his tail while in his tank, and outside of his tank if he drank from his water bowl. I believe some may have gotten in his water, and that's why he acted that way.

I have cleaned his water bowl, and will be putting a different substrate in his tank tomorrow. I currently have bark in there, I'm going to be putting in eco earth coconut substrate. I'm also going to clean his enclosure thoroughly to make sure there are no traces of PAM left. I think most of it is gone by now, though. Just want to be safe.

Thank you for all of your help!
