I have a male knob who has the first third portion of his tongue white in color. I find this strange since all of my snakes tongue are either black or red. Also this particular knob somehow has difficulty in flicking his tongue. When he crawls around my hand, I notice that his tongue appear weak. He actively flicks his tongue and somehow the tongue seems to stick to my hands before he retracts it back. Sometimes i notice that only a small portion of his tongue would come out. Is my beloved sick? Am really worried about this. Aside from this he seems ok and actively eats. Hope you could help me out on this. Sorry for the somewhat long post since i know i am having a hard time describing this to you. Thanks for reading

Chris
