That's because the sudden water raining down on her is scaring her or it's just feels uncomfortable. You don't have to spray the water directly on her, you can just spray the cage.

Yeah ... they don't like it . NO ...DON'T GET IN THE TUB WITH HER!!! SPRAY THEM, THEY DON'T LIKE IT But...you have to do it to help them shed. Rolling up in the ball is their defense mechanism!

Thumbs down

The water should be room temperature or just a bit cool...warm water to a snake is like boiling water to us...THEY ARE COLD BLOODED! "GIVING YOU THE COLD TAIL"??? ROFL (YOUR A NUT!)
