    Nothing will happen from the snake laying in it unless you left it for weeks everytime... Once she is bigger she wont use a Hide and the piss will dry from the Temps of the enclosure quicker... But I clean (That night) after work whenever they go.

    I cant weigh in on the burm part, but my BP will often go in his hide and just chill in/on/around it.

    I really don't think you can do anything to get the snake to stop doing it, just gotta stay on top of cleanings.

    One of the less wonderful parts of keeping snakes.

    Re: How do I stop my Burm peeing in her warm hide and laying in it?

    Mine did it a few nights ago and almost seemed proud of himself (same thing, warm side hide and he was laying in it)....then he wasn't happy when I had to wash him off in the bathroom sink after I replaced his paper in the cage.

    Last night I had to play "I want the rat", "I don't want the rat" for about a half hour with him.....he's JUST starting to go opaque so I was skeptical that he would eat. After quite a bit of time reheating the rodent and trying to coerce him out of his hide I gave up and left it in the cage.....and he ate the cold rodent without movement about an hour after I walked away. Little bugger...

    Years ago I read that you can use a small amount of baby shampoo to bathe your snake. Is this still okay or not??

    I have been using baby wipes for as long as I can remember, and Iíve been doing this for 30 years easy.

    It could be a security issue. All snakes are different. My male timor python is super nervous and will pee/scent all over his hide within an hour of me cleaning it. He just feels more secure surrounded by his own scent. The more I clean it the more he scents it up so we've negotiated a balance. I'll give it a good cleaning about once a month but otherwise, it just gets wiped down with a wet paper towel when I do normal/poop maintenance. Over cleaning and completely eliminating your snake's scent might be causing her to over hydrate so she can keep it coming. Maybe rubbing a little of the dirty substrate to the roof of her hide will give her enough security that she doesn't feel the need to sit in it too. Try to find your own balance. She might grow out of it as she matures and gets more confident in her surroundings, she might not.

    Yes Johnson & Johnson no tears I use. Only do this if they are a complete mess, otherwise warm water washes their scales off fine and when they dry have no smell. I havent used any in about 3 months. I will use it when they have feces all over them otherwise if its just piss or Rodent they go into the bathtub for a 3-5 min swim.
