dracomeister's comment on the if your snake is over 6ft then you don't handle them alone. This really only applies to heavy bodied snakes. A 6ft corn snake and a 6ft Boa are completely different in what they can do to you. But as a guide It's usually 1 person per meter of snake till you get to 4 meters....after 4 meters your dealing with an animal so strong that short of weaponry your stuffed if it puts the squeeze on you ( or bites you in the case of the king cobra )

As for the bath question....I would not get into a bath that I would consider the right temp for my snakes...it's to cold. Your looking at the most slightly cooler than you would bath a baby in and usually colder for non tropical snakes.....sorry to be a buzzkill Nikki.
