As po stated, take a fresh stool sample to the vet and have a fecal analysis run to verify what you have seen. If it is tapes, they have indirect life cycles and cannot be transmitted to any of your other snakes. Treatment is simple and cheap with Droncit (praziquantel) being the drug of choice. Because an intermediate host is required, it is extremely unusual to see tapes in captive raised reptiles.
