    Hello - it's my first post so apologies if this is in the wrong section (hopefully not) I have been looking at new substrate options for my 17 year old ball python and was quite keen on coco husk chips because it seems they can hold a bit of humidity and are a bit more eco friendly. After...

Anyone know if it is good for desert species such as Uros, chuckwallas, collards, torts etc, i think it would be safer then sand as it would be easy to digest if swallowed, i think it can hold burrows and would...

    It's been done before but I just wanted to start my own thread on substrate for Royal Pythons... Some starter questions: - What do you use? Why do you use it? - What would you never use? Why would you never use it? - Is it suitable to use anything other than paper in a RUB? I know this is a...
