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.
