i think we can only speculate. like everyone said, it's not a bad prolapse. i personally don't think it'll resolve without surgical help. can he live with it? i dunno... i think the best you can do without getting a vet to reduce it and suture it in place is to keep it well hydrated and feed it a varied diet.

for the longest time, i couldn't afford indigos either. instead of paying less money for indigos with skeletal/possible health issues, i opted for black tails and yellow tails. i personally think an adult male black tail and certainly a 10 foot male yellow tail is just as impressive (if not more) than an adult florida indigo. just take a look at the picts of the adults below. of course a large male rubidus (mexican red tail) prolly takes the cake when it comes to drymarchons
