Can Kenyan sand boas swim?

Kenyan sand boas can swim. As a matter of fact, it’s fascinating to watch a sand boa swim through loose substrate. However, sand boas don’t swim very well and will drown if their water is too deep.

If your sand boa is dehydrated, you can soak it in warm water for 15 minutes a day for a few days to help it rehydrate. While soaking either let it swim, or manually swish its tail around in the water to rehydrate the snake.
