I have seen loads of pics of pythons corns kings all having a bath, but I have a sand boa and i was wondering do desert species enjoy water as well, having never coming into contact with it, are their nostrils in the same places i.e adapted for going through sand.

not to bothered in actually doing this, but i got curious.

Yes you can bathe them, I have bathed them in F10 for infections before now.

Having said that, as they are a desert species I wouldn't want to do it unless it really needs it. Some of the desert species are that highly adapted to a lack of moisture that they can actually suffer and have even been known to die due to having a water bowl (I'm thinking venomous here), so bathing for these types would not be a good idea.
