does anyone know where you can get astro turf that is suitable for snakes or some type of carpet. just think something a little bit more permanent would cut down costs long term and also something that makes it easier to spot crap as quite often when i clean out the vivs i find some that i've missed because its the same coulour as the bark chippings. think it would improve hygiene.
also, is astro turf suitable for high humidity enclosures. i know the bark can help in retaining some moisture to keep humidity up

If you google astro turf suppliers you find loads of places but its not cheap
we used to use it for putting on the falcons perches, but i just asked companies for free samples as it was enough to cover a block perch

the main problem i think you'll find is going to be cleaning it unless you take the whole lot out and jet wash it down each time.

As nursey said google astro turf... Most places will only selli bulk though. You could always cut it up into sections and sell here!? I was going to do that...

Basically you want to get a short pile on the turf. They are the best although tbh it really doesn't matter to much...

they sell it for about 10 pounds a square metre in one place. cleaning shouldn't be a problem as i am planning to buy some velcro strips to secure it in so it should just rip out. nothing can be as bad a getting out every last little bit of bark at cleaning time.
any thoughts on the humidity thing? i like to keep the humidity quite high for my retic and i'm soon to get a yellow anaconda so that wil need high humidity too.
