if your mulch has the slightest chance of having wet pine sap then steer clear of it

I wouldn't use pine as a bedding, because if probably isn't kiln dried and the dust would be a problem. That being said, a snake isn't going to die from coming into contact with any kind of pine. Snakes hide in pine trees/under pine bark in the wild, so they have to have some tolerance to the oils.

the problem with pine is the phenols in the sap - its this that is toxic.
Out in the wild they're in a big open space and not in a tiny box with tiny vents in someones house where theres no escape from it.
