 Help, emergency, bleeding from vent

I recently bought a albino california king snake from repticon. Everything seemed fine while there but when i got home she musked on me. A little while later i realized she had blood coming from the vent and it seemed to be open. I am not sure what could b causing this, it may have been her last shed considering i hadn’t baught her yet. If anyone has any advice let me know

 Help, emergency, bleeding from vent

This may be no emergency. It could possibly be a really cool defense mechanism called "autohemorraging." It’s when a kingsnake will actually purposely excrete musk, feces, and cloacal blood onto its perpetrators, which, in this case, is you because she got spooked by you. My speckled kingsnake does this every time she decides to stick out her cloaca and musk me. But just in case, see a vet. Ask about autohemorraging during your visit or over the phone.
