It is not uncommon for an adult emerald to shed the large frontal teeth occasionally. That in itself is no worry. However, tooth loss could be due to a slight mouth canker problem...still not a big cause for concern in mild cases. Often the mouth rot will heal itself as the snake acclimates. Getting her settled in and feeding regularly should be a main concern now. Although I would recommend waiting as long as two weeks to offer her first meal. It takes a bit of care and patience with newly shipped wildcaught emeralds, but if she looks to be of good body weight,I wouldn't worry so much. if you suspect illness however, it wouldn't hurt to see a vet!
:now that ive taken a better look i think i know why her mouth was open, i see a tooth sticking out of her mouth. it must of gotten caught on the bag in transit to my home. do you think i should take it to a vet right away or let her get some rest for a couple of days and build some strength first? will she grow her tooth back? responses will be dearly appreciated.
