 Mites?

Could my rat snake have mites? it has something on its snout area but it has been there a while and they dont move, his nose is looking very dry and red lately, any ideas?

 Mites?

Is the snake constantly rubbing on the glass or cage with it’s nose ...my king snake did that for a while and I got a larger enclosure. She also had a red/ pink area right on the tip of her head/nose.

Whatever it is ...too small a cage or sharp wire...change it asap. If the sore doesn’t clear up in a few sheds you can put a dab of CARMAX lip balm on it to help heal. just the smallest amount.
