Corn Snake Head wobble

My corn snake is 7-8 months old and eats a fuzzy every 6 days.
She is kept on aspen bedding, her under tank heater is set to 80 F and her cool section is house temp (usually between 65-70 F). Humidity is air humidity in OH (usually 40%-60%) and hasn't had any issues shedding.

She had a month or 2 of picky eating when i first got her back in October 2019 (she is my first snake and some of that was my fault), but has been consistent since. No injuries or anything that would cause neurological issues

I took her outside this afternoon and noticed she was doing this.

It's like a back and forth head wobble. I brought her inside and she stopped doing it.

I think she was just having a new experience with all the smells outside, and since she's due to be fed tomorrow probably searching for noms.

Any other thoughts?

All my corns have done this at some point or another. It's not an involuntary wobble. It's a very deliberate movement as they assess a new environment.

That's called, "Acting like a snake." They all do that.
