Firstly, I have no intention of taking water away from my animals... want to make that clear.

Okay, i've seen/ collected snakes in the field in areas that appear to have no available water to drink for months at a time here in western/central TX. I get a few drops of dew could be available some mornings or their might be some underground sources that snakes have access to and we cant see. Just seems like they really dont have access to fresh water or any water 24/7 like we provide in captivity. obviously that doesnt apply to all of the county...

I know houses are usually very dry and snakes usually dont have access to humid/cool retreats in captivity so we provide water bowls in an attempt to prevent dehydration.

So my question is, has anyone ever tried offering very little/no water but providing and deep/ humid/ cool evironment for a snake to spend most of its time? if so, how did it work out.
