 Bloated Ball Python - Help Please!

We just fed our ball python 2 days ago and today we noticed he is bloated/swollen. The rat we fed him was a little bigger than normal. Should I be concerned?

He should be fine in a day or two once its more digested. As a rule of thumb make sure the rats you are feeding him arent much larger than the thickest part of his body. A bulge is common to see but it shouldnt be too drastic.
