    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.
