Question Stinky Snake

My Boa loves his water bowl and as usual urinates in it the second he takes the plunge. When I get home from work to change it he normally ends up stinking like an old man who's had too much to drink and doesn't get to the toilet in time!

Any top tips for making him smell more like a snake and less like an old people's home.

Thanks

Jim

i would remove the soaking area, my papuan olive picked up an R.I from to much soaking and urinating in his bowl. this can also cause scale rott soaking in waste
