So ... what you're trying to say is that tap water is safer than bottled water. I agree, but most tap water is over chlorinated. I prefer reverse osmosis and steel water bottles.

Re: A Tip for Getting Your Snake to Soak More Often

The nice thing about the aerated water bowl is that I don't have to constantly check the substrate. As long as there's still water in the bowl there's humidity in the enclosure.

If you're allowing them the right choices and good microhabitats, they shouldn't *need* to soak in thier dishes regularly.
