yes very bad.....if you have other snakes quarenteen him..until a vet tells you other wise...star gazing is one of those things that makes boid keepers freak out......first thing that comes to mind is Inclusion body disease (IBD).....yes its a giant jump to go from just star gazing to ibd but hey can't be too careful.....

first thing first.....remove this snake away from your other repts..observe him here...is he looking upwards...waiting for food? sometimes snake are condition by us to know that food dangles from above..not running by on the floor.......is the snake looking for a way out? ...... does he react to you..or does here stare out in the void and nothing else? if place on his side can he right himself like he used to?...........
pls keep us posted........and pls pm to let me know where you acquired him...i'm always interested..this can actually speak volumes.........
