Use aspen as bedding or kitchen towel.

You dont know how to feed a snake? how much have you researched before you get it? You need to feed using long tongs and if possible encourage the snake to strike feed.
Okay i know that they are really fast and i'll get a smaller rub then

I'm not getting it for a fair while yet...i heard conflicting ways of feeding them off people i know who have snakes so thought i better check. I might get an older snake anyway not a baby. I wasn't sure whether it would strike feed or be tweezer fed... I've fed 100's of baby corns before when i was on work experience so i'm not a total novice

i will use aspen shaving as it can burrow
We have too many pets...
