    As some of you may know, I have gotten into snakes as well as other reptiles. I have had snakes for nearly a year now all of them ball pythons. I now have 6. One of them is an adult female I brought home on dec 7th from a semi-local pet store. They have a good reputation and when I brought her home she looked fine. Today I noticed her eye looked funny. It almost looked like stuck shed but she has not shed since I got her. When I tried to remove it to see if it was a stuck eyecap it moved but did not come off. It looks like blood vessels burst and the eye exploded

    I see all of the leo eye photos.... no snake eye photos though... But from what you are describing I would suggest a vet asap.

    Here is the link to the photo...
    I believe she was scratched by a rat. before I got her, she was fed live. so that is what i fed her. I watch them until they have killed the rat, but I turned my back for a split second to yell at my sister's dog, and then i saw her eye when i went to take the rat out because she wasn't eating. I plan on switching all my snakes that are fed live over to prekilled... hopefully they'll make the transition easily...
