I used to handle her quite alot (new snake owner, can I be blamed?), especially since I liked to show people her feeding. I assumed that her regurging small parts of mouse was pretty normal, especially since I used to handle her waaay too much. But this time I hadnt handled her once before or after eating, I just fed her and left her be (fed in the tank so literally no holding).
In fact I normally just leave her be these days, every so now and then she comes out for 10 minutes but never near a feeding time.
Literally just checked it now and theres a decomposing mouse sitting at the side >.>
