I don't know what the clinical term is for the spray. But it is a tiny high pressure spray that can manipulate a oviduct that is encasing the egg. Keeping it from coming out.

BUT, this is very rare.

I just palpitated the snake I mentioned above this morning.. It took me about 2 minutes to get the eggs near the vent and when it was about 4 inches from the vent I kept a constant pressure for 2 whole minutes.. then I forced the egg down towards the vent and three came out. This one was exceptionally easy.

But a warning.. I have a lot of experience doing this.. So I really should not have posted this on the internet..What I am afraid will happen is the person trying this will severly stress out the snake and then give up.. OR!... hurt the snake from being overly forceful and breaking the spine ect.

What you are basically doing is surgery without cutting. It gets messy and can hust the snake if you force to much to soon.. Pateince is the game and even then some eggs are blocked by the oviduct. Most are not.. but it does happen and that is when the spray method is utilized by a EXPERIENCED HERP "COLUBRID" VET.
