Default Banana head wobble? Whirly?

So, With the head wobble thing,
My banana (first ever Royal) seems a bit wobbly, not like all the others when you turn upside down and they right themselves back up straight away, he seems a bit whirly if that makes sense before righting himself. Itís not horrendous or anything just we notice heís dopey say. He strike feeds every time and gets the rat perfectly, no problems there at all. He just seems kind of, as said, dopey?... Also got one little eye as Iíve said before on here. Banana mum and dad, no spider in them as far as aware. My other half contacting the shop back along through his work where he got him for me but never was able to get ahold of them and find out details for the breeder etc. Nightmare!
Wondered if anyone else has had this in their snakes where there is no know problems we know of, like with spiders and bees etc where we know there are problems.

Can't really comment as I've not got bamboo in any of my Royals, but I've never heard of any issues with head wobble or corkscrewing in the same way spider is renowned for.

Could be that just that individual has some neurological issues ?

Hm... seems like something neurological to me. It could have something to do with diet, what are you feeding it?

I know things come across differently in type than when spoken, but that response seems a tad sarcastic...

That member asked a bona fide question. These snakes don't just get fed rats. They accept all types of rodents and birds... Multis, large lab mice, hamsters, small guinea pigs and dago's can all be offered...

Just because you don't think it has any of the genes that can have neurological issues, does not mean that it doesn't.

I would imagine that many royals are a melting pot of undisclosed traits.
