Question What are snakes' opinions on baths?

When ever my snakes eat they always get rat pee on them, so after like 2 days, I try to rinse them off or soak them in a shallow bath, just so I don't have to deal withthe thought of having rat pee slithered across me. My ball python dislikes water for like 2 or 3 minutes, buit then calms down. Today I put in my little columbian red tail and hog isle, and they both freaked. It looked like they were trying to drown the each other in the process of using each other's bodies to get out. (The water was only like an inch and a half deep, and a comfortable warm temp.) Is it a fluke thing that they don't care for water, or in time will they too calm down? None fo them just sit and soak intheir water bowls either. I thought all snakes have the ability to swim, and some even can stay under water for like 20 min. ? Can you all help inform me on this? I recently used Eco Earth as a new substrate for their tanks, and I foresee more baths in their future.

Thanks! Jennifer:atom:
I just found homes for my 4 snake ladies: ball python, colombian boa, hogg isle boa, and a burmese. *sniff* How I miss them so...

How do I set my laser printer to 'stun'?
