I recently got an adult Green Tree Python Sorong type. Temps are 83/84 in the day nd 77/78 at night. Humidity stays at 85% most of the time and a low of about 70% (I spray a fine mist a few minutes at a time about every 8 hours). I havent handled him much because I wanted him to settle in. I did handle him last week and I thought I heard a tiny popping noise and I held his head up to my ear and sure enough he is making a barely audible clicking noise as he breathes. He looked like was about to go into shed so I thought it may be loose skin. Well he shed a few days ago and he is still doing it. His mouth is clean with no mucus, he is still eating good, and shows no other symptoms. I can't swear he hasnt done this the entire time I have had him but I didnt notice it before if he did. I am scared to give him baytril as I have read this is not good for them unless they really are sick. My vet says there is no reason to bring him in unless he shows more signs of being ill. I am terribly worried. Anyone else have a GTP that does this or knows what I can do to help him. Thanks!
