    Hello there. I'm having a bit of trouble with getting the heat mat to warm up the substrate. I have the thermostat probe placed directly on the mat so that the hottest part the snake can touch is always regulated. I've tried different size layers of bedding with little effect. I'm planning on...

    Hello. I have two questions about heating for my corn snake. Firstly, my snake is on aspen, about 1.5-2 inches deep, and he loves to burrow and make passages through it. At what depth in the aspen should the temperature be around 29C? Because I get very different temperature readings depending...

    Afternoon everyone, I've noticed that my corn (about 2 years old) has a few dry scales on him. It looks like a few bits of his skin are dry and have lifted slightly. I think it might be set up and humidity related. Here's the setup: The heat mat covers 1/3 of the viv on the RHS, thermostat...

    Anyone used this new substrate that has come over from the US. I've just ordered 20kg of the stuff as I read rave reviews and you get all the perks of aspen, minus the mess as its tiny square chips rather than whispy shreds.

    Hi All, Saw bags of Lignocel at Donny and almost got a bag for the new kenyan sand boa. Have always used aspen for my guys but it looked good and I have heard it's less dusty / more absorbent than aspen. I didn't get any in the end because I have loads of aspen left but after looking it up I...

    Hey all. Had my baby corn for a while now and he's been living on beech chips which have worked fine no problems at all. He does like to bury though which is why I was thinking of putting him onto aspen. Any brands I should stick to as this would be my first time using aspen. Thanks.

    Any thoughts on using Aspen for a boa, but my local rep store insists its not suitable for boas...YET I have seen hundreds of posts in the UK and US using it and raving about it. The shop tell me that it goes mouldy if it gets wet (?!) and can be easily ingested, but I don't feed in the viv...

  19. Snakes
    Hi all, I used to keep my 2 royals on aspen with no probs but recently changed to orchid bark on the advice of my local reptile shop. I bought a bag for each viv and used one straight away and saved the other for when it was needed. I have now noticed it is sweating and am unsure if I should...
