python hasnt pooped

So if anyone can give me advice for this, great. I might just be panicking over nothing but i'd rather ask then not say anything. Its been two weeks since my childrens python last pooped. Which i guess seems to be normal in some snakes, but this isnt typical of her. Shes not swollen, I soaked her once in warm water, shes eaten normally those last two weeks. should i feed her again and wait another week or...?

Re: python hasnt pooped

Could she be prepping for a shed? I've had a few animals go a couple of weeks without pooping and it hasn't been an issue yet.

Re: python hasnt pooped

I wouldn't be too worried. Some of mine don't go for a few weeks, others it's only a few days after feeding. As zig says most of mine will hold it in a bit longer if they're in shed.

How often are you feeding it and how old is it. Also are you sure you haven't just missed it - could it be lurking in the viv somewhere?

Its possible she could be getting ready to shed, her last shed was the beginning of july. I feed her once a week with a hopper mouse and shes one and a half. I did triple check the viv just now, so far nothing.
