Snakes & Drums

We have rearranged our home and my snake (Black Kingsnake) now shares the room where I practice my drums. Can the strong vibrations hurt or irritate my snake? Thanks for the help. -Matbritain

Yes and yes. Stress IS harm to a snake. I would advise a change of rooms for one of them.

Hello Matbritain, welcome to ssnakess.

I would advise you to place the snake somewhere else, away from the drums. Like you said, the strong vibrations will drive your snake insane, and a stressed snake is not a good snake.

If you have nowhere else to put her, buy a medium sized rubbermaid container and create a second provisory enclosure, one that you can move around the house easily, so whenever you decide to jam, place the snake in the new enclosure and move her away from the drums, then place her back in her own home, i had to do that with my BP for the longest time, it can become a pain in the a s s but, it's best for the animal.

I had the same question a while ago..

If you want to answer yourself, do what I did.

Take an aquarium, stick your head in it and have someone play the drums.. you'll see what I mean

Hahaha Wiz, now I know what happened to explain how you are ;-)

Should have taken some pics of you doing that.

As dumb as it may seem, when I built my water dragon cage, I went inside it once finished to see how they would fell. lolol a good think my gf didn't lock the doors...

Pookie: oh well, funny coincidence On Quebec forums, there's a girl with the same nickname

Siretap: I test ALL my cages that way I can see what they will see and I test it for sharp edges, openings, etc...

Good thing I never got caught in the act yet, cause I know my GF would of locked the cage
