Since you now have experience palpitating eggs out only you will know the right choice for that. There are several factors:

Like how exhausted is the female?

How well do you trust your abilities to finish palpitating that last eggs out? (tenacity on your part)

Or you can just wait a while and see if she eats and gets some strength.

Also , how do you know she is infected? what makes you think she will be?

Have you tried moving the eggs down a bit?

Only you can know the answers to these questions as you have the snake and can see and feel it.


IMO taking it to a vet is only a good idea if the vet has experience keeping colubrids and is well versed in eggs bound colubrids. Other will just refer to their manual in the back in what to do.. Most vets will want to cut. Better ones will use a high pressure spry and they know what they are doing. It all comes down to if the vet has lots of experience and is a true reptile vet and not just an advertised "exotic" animal specialist.

The problem with yours seems that it is stuck in the upper half of the body and not in the lower. So maybe FR will chime in on this and give a shout of advice. He knows the anatomy and has more experience.

Have you tried to palptate it down lower yet? Or is it really stuck?
