Copperhead Question??

I was thinking someone could help me with a question on here.
Day before yesterday, I collected a female, juv. Southern Copperhead.
I noticed this evening she was acting funny! She was twitching her head and tail every now and then, as if she was having a spasm. Her mouth would even twitch open and closed on some of the occassions. I know this was not attitude due to me not being close to her on some of the occassions.
Therefore, in fear of her having something wrong with her. I took her back to the location, in which she was found and released her. I then took her cage outside and sprayed it down with Verison.
The following is everything I did after collecting her.
As soon as she was collected she was brought home, sexed, sprayed with Black Knight just in case and put into the quarintine room.
Does anybody have any suggestions as to what might have been wrong?
Thank you,
Gilbert
