here is a question for you... when i first got my royal, i was told that they don't really like water. not sure this is true because, i had run the bath for my BRB and my royal tried to get in... not a good idea as the BRB is 6' and the water would be too deep. so, i ran some warm water into the sink, only very shallow, and he went staight in and swam around...

have i done the wrong thing with him or is it ok...????

Too deep for what?

Would you say that a 9 month old royal couls swim around in a bath of water??
Would i need to put something in there for him to rest on???

My understanding of snakes were that thier lungs are long and run down thier body so when they breath they have an automatic life vest.

Correct me if i am wrong.

Mine get baths from time to time and are fine with it. I just make sure that there's an 'island' in there (generally a plastic tub - i fill it with water so it stays still, then put the lid back on) so that they can rest or escape to dry land if they want to.
