    I cleaned the bullsnake cage today (without any belligerence amazingly! :p ) and when I was done Ginger came out for a drink. I was watching her drink because I think her cheeks are funny and I noticed occiasonally she'd flicker her tongue underwater! Wierd? Ever see anything like that before?

    one of my corn snakes dips her head under water like she is bathing and tongue flicks hte entire time. and my boa, she doesnt go to the water bowl, but when i mist her and she drinks, occasionally she will tongue flick on the glass to find water dropletts

    When I give Talyn, my BRB, a bath she usually goes underwater, blows bubbles out of her nostrils, then explores the whole bottom flicking her tongue in and out as she would exploring any other surface!
    I thought it was really amazing, too!
    I was also really surprised how long she could stay under water before coming up for air!
    Snakes are just incredible animals!!! :D
