Default Big Belly Bulge...HELP

I have a garter snake that is about a year old. About 12 inches long. Name is "Busta". Busta last ate on Saturday, a rather large fish. Probably bigger than he should have had. He has a huge bulge way back in his body. Does anyone know what this is? I am worried that food is stuck. Any ideas?

Yes it is that large meal, should not be a problem.I f he does not regurge it back up he will most likely digest it fine! Don't feed until the lump is gone and nothing quite so large, two smaller is always better!
