Each snake has its own personality, quirks, displays; just like any other animal. And these traits & quirks can manifest in so many aspects of their interactions with you, their surroundings, etc..
These are three examples of some of those “quirks” expressed through the act of drinking.
Aurelius the Ultramel corn snake is the paranoid drinker - very cautious in his approach, barely sticking his snout in to drink and any sign of movement will cause him to pause, watch, retreat, and then return for a longer drink when the “coast is clear”.
Derp the ball python is the dainty drinker - very calm, doesn’t matter if anyones watching he is very graceful in barely touching the water to drink and then periscoping up to finish his little gulps. Very much the gentleman. ;)
And then you have…
Jumani the pewter corn snake the unlady-like drinker - she likes to watch the water be poured into her bowl and then will completely plow into her bowl submerging herself to drink, coming up for air & going back down till satiated. Then coming out of her bowl dripping wet. Messy messy little miss!
Do any of your snakes have odd drinking habits? Quirks?
