Sperm plugs.

edit: Just watch the video that eightball posted. 1 minute in shows what the plugs look like. It just means that the snake is producing sperm and mature enough to breed (and that it's a male). Younger royals obviously don't have them.
also worth mentioning, royals as small as 350g can on the odd occasion be able to produce them but its not common at that size
