:I got a blood python about 2 months ago and she looked very good when I brought her home but her scales have started to get very rough. It is almost like the scales have puffed out and are almost dome like. I have tried to raise the humidity but I havn't seen any improvement. She also has refused to eat. Please help me. What could be the problem? Any advice would be of great help. thanks.

I'm not much of a snake expert, but Robyn of Pro-Exotics had an excellent article on Blood Pythons in one of the recent issues of Reptiles magazine. Here is the link: http://www.proexotics.com/blood_article.html.

If after checking the accuracy of your set-up & if there is no improvement, see a vet ASAP. Goodluck
