Has anyone else had similar experience?
 
My kingsnake ate whilst shedding (i didn't know or i wouldn't have fed her until after) and then bedame really bloated. I could see her vent was swollen about 5 days later. I put her in water and she defecated (alot). Is this normal when a snake is shedding? To have these digestive problems?

Well I try not to feed my King in shed because she goes mental, but my Corn eats in shed all the time, never had any problems. Are you sure yours just didn't have some poo stored up?
