Without seeing the individual I would guess that there could possibly a bacterial infestation. Does it look as though the snake ate a football(no joking)....I suggest that you could raise the POT, temperature of the enclosure and see if the snake's immune system will solve the problem....It could quite possibly be excessive digestive gasses from a too large of a meal and the raised temp will help to digest the food item....but if you find that you are really worried about the snake's well-being or if it's condition worsens please go to a Vet....thanks ..PS I have also tried mineral oil to soften and purge the eaten food faster...
