I too doubt that the prey revived. Constrictors in general will not lossen on prey until no movement is detected, including heartbeat. Many folks will think their animals is holding on long after the prey is dead, when in most cases the snake still detects a heartbeat and is making sure the job is done. I would look closely for another cause before introducing another animal into the same area.
