Snake husbandry question:

How sensitive are snakes to candle smoke? What about incense?

I'm looking at getting a plain ol' ball python as a first snake. In the past, I had birds and so burning things was a no-no. I've come to really enjoy burning a little incense/scented candles now that I don't have little lung sacs to worry about. ANYWAY, how sensitive to this kind of thing are snakes? My apartment is pretty small, so a single incense stick can make it visibly smoky. When I burn resin, I use damn near smokeless charcoal but clearly there's still hot aromatic molecules in the air. I thought I'd play it safe and just ban burning again, but I thought I'd ask if it was much of an issue before I sacrifice my ambient hippie stink.

Animals don't like perfume.
Snakes are slightly less sensitive to it, but still don't recommend doing this.

Cool, thanks. Small sacrifice for a healthy animal, just curious about it.

snakes won't mind much, but it's really bad for birds and shit.

It's not even on their radar, healthwise. Perfumes and such are a distraction. It's not natural. They don't care for it. If it's incredibly strong, it might stress them a little. But it is about as harmful as your girlfriend's perfume. It's not like you're putting incense in their hide.

Offtopic, I read a guide saying not to use scented candles and such next to marine aquariums a well back. The source was incredibly reliable. I've, to this day, never found someone to explain why. I have a marine aquarium so it was relevant to my interests.

You probably know this, but it's worth pointing out to the general public that snakes have 1 primordial undeveloped lung and are incredibly sensitive to air quality. I know know much about avians, but I'm under the impression that their sensitivity to air quality is for some other biological reason.

It is unhealthy.
