 Is this normal???

Ok, so i was wondering if it’s normal for my snakes to do this? is this stargazing?



They will sometimes stare straight up, or sometimes my red-tail boa will look up so far that his head is actually upside down and the white of his neck/belly is facing the ceiling. he will do this either pointing up into the air or sometimes while he’s lying down he will twist his head to the side so that the top of his head is resting on the ground. I’ve looked into IBD and he doesn’t seem to exhibit any other symptoms. Also, as soon as i come over to his cage he sees me and stops, or at least acknowledges i’m there before going back to it. and I’ve taken him out and flipped him upside down (especially when i first noticed him laying like that) and he rights himself right away, it’s almost like he’s just chillin like that, like that’s how he’s most comfortable or something. oh, and all my snakes do this, just not quite to the degree that Zuess does. so is this normal? and if not, what should i do about it?
oh, yeah, just so this post counts as a ’burmese python post’ =)

Yeah, that’s what i figured, but this self proclaimed know-it-all was at my house the other day and he’s all like "umm, your snakes all have a serious neurological disorder and they’re all going to die a very painful death if you don’t take them to the vet now" But i’m glad to know that this just further proves he’s a freakin idiot and power-tripper & likes to think he knows everything, and his ego’s bigger than his....well you get the point. Ugh, i hate people like that!
