Isn't that the same general stuff used for Bunny Bedding and such?

I'm using it for my Dermestids and they like it, I use old coffee to keep the smell down. But I don't think you can do that for snakes!

Morning exercises Razz these are from today





Bath Time these were like a week ago when he was about to shed...




ALSO a Bonus Bath time video...(this was his first bath with us and we were told next time to add more water so in the next video there will be more swimming and more action)



Also check out his cool alien markings

Indeed they are Smile need some sort of way to keep cool and keep warm for him in his tank I got one of those reptile heat mats that stick to the bottom and I have his substrate that holds in the heat and gets warm rather than hot like on the glass itself....and over by his water I have a light it doesn't really produce heat but if he climbs to the top of his tree stump he can get a bit more warmth its really not needed but he seems to like it....

I even Take him outside to get some sunlight yet again I don't think its necessary but I do it anyways

Yeah no it doesn't I agree that's why I have it on the warm side of lukewarm the most damage it will do is probably make its metabolism faster...im not really positive tho but I know too cold can really F things up

Fiesty Fridays! Sounds like a bar or something haha!

I don't think they are that hungry Myrm, snakes are able to slow their motablism down [I think] and go "semi-Dormant" if need to.

They say that snakes "size you up" when they stretch out beside you its accurate for big snakes like boas that could eat a human but for tiny snakes like balls and some other pythons (some pythons get very big) they will only eat the size of their mid waist (not saying they wont try im sure they would) but it could harm them Razz and the only way they slow down their metabolism if I remember correctly is temperature colder means slower that's why when they eat ur supposed to provide them with heat to help them digest Smile

Razz I live 2 hours north from GP Smile and hes safe he lives with my mom again but its not my problem Razz I think it scared me more than him because I had no clue WHAT to do and I wasn't 18 at time but I was his guardian so it was a lot of phoning to my mom to get consent but he stay 2 days in the hospital getting insulin drips....his blood was so thick it took about 15 mins just to draw a bit of blood it was crazy.....


Oh and like 2 weeks ago on Friday Razz gave chewy a mouse and he bit the shoulder and coiled and the mouse bit him back so he squeezed harder its eyes almost popped out O.O
