Excellent points, thank you.

Every time I ask about this, I get more interesting info and suggestions.
I don't recall her ever doing this as a young snake. I've had her since she was about 18 inches long, and she never had any odd issues like this- if it's a structural anomaly, It'd be interesting if it presented after five years or so- still possible, especially since the last opinions were that she might have sustained a jaw injury without my knowing.

If this keeps presenting, seems to interfere with her ability behave normally, or gets worse/doesn't go down in mere moments after activity, the next step will likely be me finding a vet who can do a decent ultrasound or MRI. I'm definitely hugely invested in this snake.

She is fully blue right now, so I'll be interested to see in a couple of days if this doesn't happen at all once she's shed.

I am definitely glad it doesn't appear to be an infectious condition, for her sake and the sake of my other BCC.

Thanks so much for your input.
