Sometimes a snake will choose to rest in its water bowl if there are insufficient suitable hides in the enclosure. Mites, skin irritation, full belly, high temps and "cos it can" are also reasons they may choose to stay in their water bowl.
Mine never do
very very occasionally they will sort of 'splash through' it snd put water all over their enclosure but they never sit in their water....and I have bg lasagne dishes of water for them so plenty of space but they just say 'nah'
Mine hate the water ...lol it's weird
I know everyone will have a story but one of my hatchies did it recently. First thing I thought was mites and started freaking out. Then I realised I'd just knocked the tub too far onto the heater and it was just getting a bit too warm. So if it's not a regular swimmer maybe have a look that temps aren't getting high for any reasonKnowledge - The one thing you can give away freely while still keeping for yourself

All of mine love the water and regularly go for big swims under water holding their breath for a minute or more.....but you would never really see this unless they have a very large waterbowl or aquarium

They certainly won't drown unless they cant escape the water and eventually get exhausted and drown
My BHP will get in the spa for a swim occasionally, but my Darwin will stay submerged for hours. She loves her water.Everyone criticizes the Salem Witch Trials, but we haven't had a witch attack in over 200 years. ~ Some bloke on twitter
Like others have said some snakes just enjoy being in the water. My Water python certainly does
The pics of her in the tub were to help her with a bad shed, I have a coastal that hates water so putting him in a tub of water is a bad idea but this girl loves it. The other pics are when I had a friend over and I was cleaning out the tub Lilly used to live in. I put her water bowl on the table and she slithered in there and swam around for about half an hour.In this day and age, why do people still believe everything they see on the TV and read in the newspaper? You can learn some very interesting things when you learn to think for yourself!
Love the shots in the pyrex bowl.
