I use 16 oz. deli-cups for most of my water bowls....which are 3 3/4" deep. They seem to do ok with them. If you are worried, just use a more shallow dish. Most kings are out and about while you are sleeping. This is usually when they go through their routine of dringing and hunting. Believe me, they do know where their water is. If you are worried about shedding problems, just spray a light mist on the snake every couple of days.

:Hey, I have a baby banana cal king that's about 14 inches long. I have a water bowl in there that's maybe 3 or 4 inches deep. I've only seen him drink from it on his own once. When I've put him back into his cage, there's been a couple of times where I'd hold him close to the water, to see if he'd drink. He did drink when I did this, but I'm worried that maybe he's not drinking on his own. I've especially become a little worried since I noticed that he was about to shed yesterday, and I know that moisture is good for them during this process. Anyway, I was just wondering if maybe I should get him a more shallow water bowl, or if this one's fine? Thanks a bunch!
