i keep nearly all my reptiles on news paper certainly all my pythons and boa and ive never at all noticed the print coming off onto them. I find it so much easier than most substraites anything else i put in with the big guys just ends up in a pile in the middle of the viv rendering it useless, (unless the snakes have some sinister plan for it lol).

I think the general advice is to use old newspaper which allows the ink to dry fully - not new - not sure it really makes a difference

Some papers these days are treated so the ink doesn't come off on your hands. I keep my big bci's on paper with no problems

I just make sure I put the newest papers at the bottom of the pile, so the sheets I use are at least 2 weeks old. No problems with ink smudging at all, and that's the free advertiser thing that comes through the door every week!
