She has no other problems. She always feeds regularly and never refused a meal. Ever. I'm taking her to the vet today to get checked out. I soaked her in some luke warm water yesterday until her recent shed was off. We will see what the vet says about the tail. From what I researched it seems like it can happen to snakes especially GTPs to leave a little piece of shed on the tip of its tail, which can build up and suffocate it. This then kills that part of the tail until it falls off. When it falls off it can become infected, and thats when the snake is in danger. I'm gonna go ahead and take her in, probably cut the tip off, and get some antibiotics to be safe.
