Yay good to hear! it could be because she was a bit more awake aswell! im happy for you lol. By the way your corn looks identical to mine lol hopefully ill have pics soon.

The only downside now is that you cant handle her for a good 24 hours lol

I think the problem is more if the snake is unable to swallow it because the front legs get stuck at the side of the mouth, so as long as he has swallowed it I shouldn't think there would be a problem.
My royal took a mouse once sideways, ended up folding it in half to eat it! lol stupid thing!

Does it really matter?
She seems to be fine?
Don't worry about it, a couple of mine have done / still do this. As long as they're eaing fine there's no problem.
