Ok, I need some advice.... I currently keep my royals on the dark brown bark chips (the moist one) and find this is ok for helping keep up humidity, however, I am getting some new gex tomorrow and saturday and hav just soaked and prepared eco earth for them....U no the stuff that looks like a brick, u soak in water and then it becomes like a soil substrate? Well my question is this....can it be used for snakes? Its more natural and is also moist but not so moist as to cause respiritory problems.
Please help!

I use it as the basis for all my tropical snakes (not actual eco earth but coconut husk).

You do panic a lot for a while as you constantly think you have mites but once you get used to that it's fine.

I have had no problems using it with healthy animals.

i use organic peat with my snakes, its doing them fine (and its economical) if you found that the humidity was too high... dry it out and make a "damp hide" with sphagnm moss.. its great stuff!
