My 6' female columbian boa is behaving very strangely. She has breed this season and is currently in shed (post ovulation?)
I took her out this morning and she is moving in a disturbed manner. Her head and upper quareter of body just started zigzaging in a S-shape or the infinity symbol (try to picture the figure 8 turned sideways) She just sits there moveing like this continualy, literaly turnig her head upside down with each sway in the manner described above. Its as if she is not in controly of her body. A disease maybe???

Im not new to snakes. Ive had many breeding projects this year but Ive never seen a snake do this. Its extremely disturbing and I quarentee its not normal.

Experiance and opinions wanted.
Thanks
Brendan
