Just a note - snakes don't have the same mucocilliary apparatus in their lung(s) as mammals, so stuff that gets into their lungs/bronchi (particulates and infections, etc) are difficult to get out. I've got one client with a snake with a URI and the only thing I can find wrong(temp, etc)is that he smokes alot in that room.
