What's wrong is that there are no cleansing winds, rain, and sunlight to cut down on bacterial growth. Any cut or scratch is more likely to get infected in an enclosed space than in the wild as coliform bacteria builds up at much higher rates.

Even small scratches can cause sepsis. Plenty of snakes die a few months after acquiring a small wound because of a systemic coliform infection.
