Markus, you have at least 3 theories, fat, prolapse related to tail kink, dehydration. Probably more out there. Go to the Green Tree Python forums/books and learn about prolapses, those folks are the experts on them, and you might try the various remedies, sugar water, saline, etc. See if that helps or changes anything. Alan suggests soaking, and that never hurts and may help a lot. Good luck and let us know what you learn, and if you go the veterinary surgery route. Sometimes that is needed/the cure if indeed it is a prolapse of the cloacal/intestinal tissue. For sure don't let it dry out...Vic
