    Hey guys. I’m getting a baby corn snake tomorrow. I use bedmax shavings for my pet rats as the dust is extracted. Would this be safe to use with a snake. I can’t find much in bedmax and snakes online

    Does anyone have any experience using crinkle paper or shredded paper as a substrate? I am thinking about using this on top of paper sheets. I am looking for a dark substrate for my black rat snake that is safe and allows for digging. It says its non-toxic to animals and humans. But just...

    So, i'm getting a 48 x 18 x 18 for a baby male royal, i hope it's not too big for them. But anyway, how much coconut husk substrate is needed to fill the vivarium enough? (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Exo-Terra-Terrarium-Substrate-Quart/dp/B01KV8EUBK?th=1 is this enough?) and how often do i need...

    Does anyone know of a dark (preferably black) substrate that is safe for Black Rat Snakes? Most substrates I have seen other than dirt or some sand are light colored. Trying to keep monochromatic black if possible. Is charcoal safe or maybe cinder (Like people use for plants)? I know these...

    I currently use Beardie Life which my Uro (geyri) loves to burrow in. It looks great for a day or too but then it goes a sort-of faded white colour (not sure if this is heat or UV exposure). It is also a nightmare to replace and dispose of. Not to mention the price. What are people using on...

    I have been looking everywhere, all my local pet shops, online, with friends but I can't get my hands on the substrate I use for my tortoise. I use plantation soil from exoterra and everywhere I look its sold out. My tortoise (henry) really needs some new substrate. Its starting to smell. Does...

    I just upgraded my yearling Suriname BC from an Exo Terra Large Low with, I know, repti-carpet, to a brand new 6' Boaphile with Reptile Prime Coconut Fiber (not the fine). I moved her into her new home last night. She immediately burrowed under the substrate - the first time she has ever been...

    Hi all, 5 years since I last logged in :/ So for several years, I've kept all my snakes, one boa and 4 rat snakes on newspaper, originally changed them all from aspen as it was too messy and kept getting caught in the runners for the glass on my tanks. I recently swapped my boa on to...

    i am looking at getting western banded geckos (2-3) in either a 30x30x30 or a 45x45x30 exo terra and have been doing lots of research but cannot decide what substrate to use, a healthy wbg is just fine on sand but i kind of want to make it bioactive but i am not sure whether this is even...

    I am in the process of setting up a tank for some fire bellied toads that I'm planning to get once lock down is over. I have plenty of experience with reptiles but this is will be my first amphibian and first time setting up any sort of water area. The set up is going to be roughly 50/50 land...

    I'm going to be upgrading my two corns and mexican black kingsnake soon and was wanting to switch up the substrate for a more natural look without going fully bioactive. All of them are currently on aspen shavings, but I was thinking of trying out cocoablox. Would this make a good substrate...

    So I've been using reptile carpet half of my dwarf boa's viv, with orchid bark on the other half. I have two equal pieces of carpet so i can just swap them over while washing the other. All seemed well... then today I went to feed him, which i usually do over his basking slate or over his...

    Hi All, a quick question on bioactive substrates. I've got a Panther chameleon living in an enclosure with bioactive substrate, He's been in the current tank for almost 2 years, and I was wondering if anyone else has done anything to refresh the substrate? I feed the bugs in there with vegetable...
