Bryce, actually, most snakes do have two lungs. In the case of boids and pythons, the left lung is very small, and or non-functional. Anyways,

I will have to back burmbaroness on this one. 100 degrees and over is too hot. If you can catch a respitory infection early, then sometimes just raising the temps a little will take care of the problem..but, if you see mucous, and hear clicking in thier lungs, then the RI is pretty bad, and temps will not fix it. As BW said, she will need injections of Baytril. 3 or 4 shots is usually all it takes. These shots need to be given every other day, or every 2 days. Snakes metabolize slowly, so smaller doses, spread out, works better.
