  • snake bathing?

    ok heres my question.

    my snake loves his hide box so much he poops and pees in it while he is in it, so i have to give him a bath cuz he stinks. i usually just use warm tap water and let him play in it for a few this helps with the smell, but here goes the question

    is there anything SAFE to add to the tap water to aide in cleaning them and getting rid of the small remaining smell they have?
    all ideas are very welcome. hehe

    oops i forgot to say i do clean their housie too lmao

    I know you can use the baby types, just make sure you rinse well and try to avoid getting any in the eyes and nostrils.

        Mine does the same thing, I just give them long baths in the bath tub. I clean it out really well, and let 'em go. b1.gif I also dry them off really well after their swim. cwm38.gif
        also, make sure to clean and sterilize his house and everything in it often. I do mine weekly. this helps keep the odor down.

          Normally when a snake sits in his own defecation and needs cleaned luke warm tap water is all that is required. Soak him in it and rub him down with your bare hands. Any smell that is left will dissapear very shortly thereafter.
