I have a black mexican king snake, juvenile. He's been fine as far as eating/digesting until about a month ago. For the fourth meal in a row he has regurgitated the fuzzy hours later in the day. The room he's kept in stays at about 85 degrees, sometimes getting up to the high 80s and low 90s on very hot days. Are these temperatures too high, or too low? The other thing I thought might be involved with the problem, he started regurgitating when I moved him to fuzzies. I'll try a pinky again, but I find it hard to believe a thing such as hair/fur is causing this problem. Could it be some kind of intestinal blockage? I keep him on aspen chips, but he is fed in a plastic container so as to prevent ingesting of the wood. That's all I can think of right now, please comment asap. Thanks
