Normal poo or diarrhea?

I recently purchased my first ball python. I fed her 1 medium rat 2 days ago. Tonight she had a large poo that was watery. I'm not sure what normal bp droppings are supposed to look like but I am concerned because she is my first snake and I want to make sure she is healthy. This watery poo is not especially stinky and she appears fine otherwise. She is active and curious, not lethargic or hiding.

First off, welcome to the forum and the wonderful world of snake keeping!!

Is your BP and adult? What is her weight?

They pass excess water when they poop. If the stool itself isnt runny and it doesn't smell especially bad it's probably quite normal.
