Valid points - snakes do not sweat and therefore lose minerals as fast as say humans do, snakes typically do not drink much water anyway. I must agree the logic seems to stand.

If you look on the web (so it must be true...) there are as many pro-distilled water articles as there are anti-distilled water articles. All say that distilled water raises acidity.

I'll stick to filtered water for herps, you can do your distilled. But now I am wondering what I should drink? lol Apparently softdrinks often use distilled water because carbon is more easily absorbed in distilled. That is why softdrinks offer no minerals, and that is a complaint by doctors besides the chemicals and sugar.
