Thank you for getting back to me. I recommend that you have your snake examined by a reptile vet. The strange body movements and abnormal shed can be signs of something called inclusion body disease. This has become quite common in pythons. Some of the symptoms are subtle, such as abnormal shedding. Other signs can include regurgitation of food, weight loss, and in-coordination. Snakes won’t exhibit all the signs. You can read more about it at the following site.
There are other possibilities as well. Other infections could cause these symptoms, as well as certain parasites. Any time a snake has an abnormal shed, it is an indication that something may be wrong. Your snake will need to be seen by a reptile vet. A local vet probably won’t be familiar enough with snake illnesses to effectively treat your snake. This link will help you find a reptile vet:http://www.anapsid.org/vets/index.html#vetlist
In the meantime, you may want to adjust your temperatures. There should be a gradient so the snake can find an area that is most comfortable at any given time. You want the daytime ambient air temperature throughout the enclosure to be maintained between 80-85*F (27-29* C), with a basking area at 90*F (32.5* C). At night, the ambient air temperature on the cool side may be allowed to drop down to 73-75*F ( 23-24* C), but no lower, and only if a basking area of at least 80*F (27* C) is provided.
