TBD I have never heard of, but what you are describing is IBD (Inclusion Body Disease). First sign is usually regurgitation. When you are able to get her out and flip her over onto her back, note whether or not she knows which way is up. The vet won't be able to help you if it is in fact IBD. There are no tests for it. The only way to find out is after the snake is deceased and a necropsy is performed. Many snakes will sit and stare upward at nothing without having the disease. When she is staring off into space, does she react when you wave your hand in front of her face (eyes focus/move, tongue flicker)? She may be reaching breeding age and is acting a bit odd because of it.....
Just keep walking and ignore the monkeys...
