Do certain snakes/serpents swim after feeding?
I think I recall seeing in a documentary that certain snakes will swim in water after feeding to aid in digestion.

Some water snakes might do that.

Some snakes are devout aquatics and rarely come out of water short of laying eggs.
Something like anaconda are semi aquatic, they will bask for warmth after a meal.
I doubt remaining in water helps digestion, water/sea snakes have adapted to staying in water.

No, snakes require warmth to digest their food and will nmormally curl up in a warm spot to aid thee digewstion process.

They might, but remember that reptiles have to "bask" - get nice and warm - during the process of digestion.

Of course. Water snakes and sea snakes feed in water. Some sea snakes only come ashore to lay eggs; others don't even do that. I doubt that swimming aids in digestion, though.

For most, if not all pet snakes I'd say no. But if it's a water snake you should always have water. Also Boas like soaking.
