Re: boa mouth issue questions/photos

As far as the water running out when you pick it up, that's quite common if you pick a snake up right after they take a long drink. I'd imagine even more so when it's missing part of it's face/part of its face is deformed.

The boa is currently in shed and very dehydrated like you said. Judging by the shape of the mouth it is either currently battling mouth rot or did in the past.

It's very possible it also has an RI from what you describe.

That one tiny eye is a bit worrisome...I've seen some amazing eye recoveries but it's possible that eye has been completely lost judging by how deflated and small it is.
