I worked for the vet for 4 years (and had left 4 years ago), and he still contacts me on occasion to discuss whats going on with a person's reptile hes working with. Or to see if a person actually knows what they're talking about. Shes fairly tame, hates restraint but I did get her mouth open finding nothing else then a pissed off retic. No other apparent marks outside that other small mark on the snout. She has good body weight and tone, quick to try and get out of my hands. Her eyes are clear and dilate appropriately. Pits are clear, mouth and head do not show any real signs of swelling or any uneven appearances outside this scab on her head. Shes alert to her surroundings and follows me just fine, tongue flipping 1000mph. I work different shifts every few weeks so am home at different times of the day, so I can and have been observing her behaviors at every part of the day - In fact, its about 12:30 in the morning and shes under a hide. I have never, at any time, noted her attempting to press her head against the top of her enclosure outside when shes trying to stay out (doesn't want to go back in after I work her, but doesn't want to come out when I pick her up - Love my retic). She knows its about time for feeding (tomorrow night) and shes getting a bit more then assertive with eyeballing me - Shes already learned the feeding pattern. I will have to work on a picture in the AM - Poor lighting and a camera that hates to take clear crisp shots isn't exactly going to help.
