My corn snakes usually poop 3 days after they eat. Snakes going into shed often do not poop.

(Good on Twolunger for using the grown up term "defecate". I could have but I'm not that mature, lol)


Poo a better word I never want to grow up

My snake is approaching 3 years, eats a 30 to 35 gram mouse every 14 days, and generally poops 3 days after, however, if he's about to shed he sometimes refuses food, and sometimes holds his poop until after the shed.

George shed 2 days before I fed him and it's now been 6 days since feeding and he hasn't pooped yet

Have you handled him any in the past 6 days since he ate?

I've noticed with my snake (not sure if this will work for you, but I've heard of others doing this as well) on the 3rd day after he has eaten, I take him out and play with him for about 30 minutes. And then I put him back in his cage, and usually he poops within a few minutes.

Something about the play time and stimulation, puts him in the pooping mood. I've heard other folks do this as well, and often complain because the snake pooped on them while out of the cage. So far, my snake has not done that, he always goes in his cage.

My snake "Rufus" by the way looks just like your Aurora.

George is having regurg problems so I'm not supposed to handle him.

(3 regurg since I adopted George and aurora)

yes, but if he is regurgitating 6 days after eating, then he needs to see a vet ASAP. That would mean "Nothing" is moving through his digestive system indicating a "Blockage."

You're generally not supposed to handle for a day or 2 after eating, but 6 days is plenty of time.

So, you're saying he has regurgitated (I'm guessing a few times, not just once).

And now he has eaten, and it's been 6 days with no regurge and no poop.

If this was my snake, I'd be thinking right now "There is an obstruction or blockage of some type keeping food from passing through."

Are there any reptile vets in your area? If so, you might want to schedule a visit.
