I have recently purchased a young male olive python. After recieving him, I noticed some small bumbs under his skin, mostly on one side of the snake. The bumps seem to be evenly spread out, almost a if the ribs of the snake make them more prominent. They are very difficult to feel (very soft) but if I hold the snake and let him crawl through my hands , they become more visible when he relaxes his muscles. He eats great, has a fiesty attitude and overall is looking good. As this is a recent purchase, I am wondering if this something to worry about (obviously I am) or if I am being paranoid. I have read a bit on the subject and the only results I read are poss subcu nematodes.
Any help or experience would be appreciated.
Matt
