Salt Rocks Harmful?

    Are salt rocks okay to keep in a tank with a snake? I am looking for ways to decrease humidity in my tank. Salt rocks are something I am considering, because they can soak up moisture from the surrounding air. I would keep them in a small dish, but the snakes would be able to come into contact with them.

    I don't think it should hurt them. I can't think of any reason why it would, but maybe someone here knows for sure?

    I wouldn't. Salt, particularly damp salt is highly corrosive.
    Give us a detailed run down on the specifics of the tank and what you are housing in it and maybe we can help.

    So far I haven't gotten the animal yet, and I have yet to set up the heating equipment. I am hoping that the undertank heater and the ubv light will help with the humidity. The tank is a 20ga long glass tank with a screen lid. The relative humidity in my house (and therefore my tank) is 60%. It is always high here.

    What are you looking to put in there?

    A Kenyan Sand Boa. I have decided against using the salt rocks though.
