Default Snake Breathing,Body Movement

Is it normal to see your snake breathing?

When i hold my snake i can see his body inflate and deflate.He doesnt look like he is struggling to breath.

Its a pueblan milk snake

They tend to breath a bit more deeply / faster when they are a bit nervous or anxious.

If you can't see it breathing, then that's the time to get worried.....
