Have noticed that out of all my snakes, only ONE doesn't like tubs, rubbermaids or any sort of lower in height enclosure. He constantly rubs along the edges, the holes, etc. And has caused damage to himself before.
I just ended up removing him from those types of things and buying an actual tank for him. Because the tanks are like 12-24 inches tall, he can't really maintain enough stability to rub his nose along the top. And he doesn't seem to rub on the glass.
*shrug* I guess you get those individuals who just don't like tubs
