    Bowls meant for people use last much longer or ceramic or glass bowls sold for cats.
    I thought this but it still holds water.

    I really like some of the Zoo Med bowls, I use the large corner bowls. They still manage to move them, but I’ve used those types of bowls for over twenty years. I would check out the Zoo Med site! Actually longer, man am I old. I doubt they can tip them, but never underestimate them.

    That's what we use, too. They will 100% find a way to get around that dang bowl, but I keep it about half full so we don't have any issues with spilling.

    Hopefully not mites, & maybe it's not the snake either, as some suggested the bowl might be defective. Take it out, dry the outside, fill it & set it on a piece of
    paper for a while...you'll have your answer.

    Whatever kind of bowls you use, you want flat bottom types...I have seen snakes tip the ones that aren't flat (& wide) enough on the bottom.

    While some of the "naturalistic" bowls look cool, I prefer those (made for humans) that are smooth & easier to keep clean (& free of hard water deposits).
    I also want to be able to see into it...to know if it's dirty & needs changed...so I prefer clear or at least light color for ease of spot checking. Some snakes
    like to defecate in their water bowls...
