do you bath snakes?
My sister just leaves big dish of water in tank to help snake shed skin not sure about bathing but i dont know anything about snakes
we do when its warm only once in the blue moon, they seem to like it
but mine also have a large water dish in soak in thier viv
i have got 10 snakes at the min and they all love going in there water bowls they have a nice swim in it.
we do not make tem go in the water if they do not want to but it dones help alot wth sheding ...
well my snake used to just have a swim in the water bowl.
Only if there's issues with shedding (which is rare) other than that they sometimes like to soak in their water bowls.
It depends on the breed to how reluctant I am to bath them, if my boa is having trouble shedding I won't think twice about bathing her (although that proves difficult with an 8ft boa haha) however I try to refrane from bathing my royal pythons, they like lesss humidity than the boas and so if they have trouble shedding it's better to just add a moss hide to assist.
