Re: Boa health issue

No clue, but you could always contact a vet by email and provide a better picture.

Re: Boa health issue

It looks like a prolapse. I would definitely get the animal to a vet ASAP.

Re: Boa health issue

Looks like a prolapsed vent/anus. It could indicate a lot of potential gastro-intestinal issues. Give the feeding a break until he goes to the vet.
