Same with snakes, you should increase the humidity as well as the temp to battle and RI. The temp should be raised to at least 105 or more degrees. Another reason snakes may make a whistling sound is due to stress. It sounds identical to the whistle that they make when they are going into shed and their nostrils are clogged. Just keep an eye out for any other signs of an RI such as refusal to feed, sneezing, wheezing, mouth gaping, gurgling, mucous, etc. Also, if you ever do need to treat an animal for an RI, try to avoid using Baytril. There are many more effective meds that have come out in the past years such as Fortaz, etc. that work better and cause less damage to the snake.
