Default royal python help needed

hi sorry for being a bother but i have had my first snake (royal python) for just under a year now. I was feeding her a small rat earlier and i must have left it to defrost for a bit too long and its guts fell out of its back end when she squeezed it. She ate it no problem but i did notice that the entrails had some of the orchid bark i use for her bedding on it. She ended up eating quite a few pieces and seems fine but i was just wondering if this could cause any problems?
Any advice would be great thank you!

Very unlikely to cause any problems.
Just think about the kind of debris and stuff they end up eating in the wild
Also you can't really defrost for too much, the guts sometimes just come out, especially with a thick bodied snake, if they squeeze a bit hard, it happens from time to time, don't worry too much about it.
