Corn snake eating some cypress mulch
 
My juvenile corn snake has eaten a little cypress mulch while I was feeding her. Normally, I put a tile or tuperware in her tank for her to eat in. To prevent her from eating substrate. This time she drug out and through the substrate. And some mulch stuck to it. I tried to grab the pieces sticking out of her mouth but she gulped down too fast to grab it all. Worried beginner snake owner here lol. Will she be okay? Will be keeping an eye on her though.

She should be okay. There's a small risk of impaction, but most snakes can handle eating a little substrate every now and then. You can also try feeding her in a separate container in the future to eliminate any risk of ingesting substrate.
