I have a baby ball python. She has eaten 2 times before. she is 5 months old and 18 inches long. She ate yesterday morning. It was the same size as the other food, a small rat fuzzy. Only thing is, i have not seen the lump in her belly go away. also it seems as tho she does not hav the strength to move. Temps and humidity is fine. Maybe a digestion problem?

It takes a while for snakes to digest their food, and after they eat they usually remain very still and might seem sluggish, since they are using all of their energy to digest. This is why it is important not to disturb them for about 72 hours after feeding, as some snakes will regurgitate the mouse.
