Ok I purchased a snake for a local breeder maybe 6 days ago. Its a female young adult Spider Ball Python. Anyway first few days she wouldnt eat but then finally out of no where she wanted small rat after small rat. Well she ate and I thought my worries were over. Tonight I noticed in her tub she deficated. As I was cleaning out her tub I noticed clinging to her defication what looked like tape worms! Has anyone ever heard of this? How in the world would a snake catch them? Maybe feeders?

Anyway because I spent my lifes saving on a few different snakes, a rack & supplies a VET visit is breaking my heart & wallet. (If she has to go she has to go) My question is ...is there something the reptile world sells I can buy to do it my self? Please let me know....thanks to all who reply.
