I have tried a few different types of bedding for my king snake and this by far the best. My snake loves this bedding because it is the best for burrowing.

I use to use solely zoo med aspen for my snake collection, I used it for my Boa and for my Milks, and I used it in a blend for my Ball Pythons. Lately, though I noticed my boa soaking in his water for an extended period of time. I checked for mites, did the normal stuff, and then I found that the aspen bedding was actually irritating his stomach. I cleaned the cage out and replaced it with Kritter's Crumble Kritter's Crumble All Natural Coconut Husk Fiber Reptile Substrate and Small Animal Bedding - Fine, 21 quarts, which I use for my Carpet Pythons. He was EVER so greatful, and has not since returned to his water bowl due to irritation. This will be the last round of zoomeds bedding I used. Shocking too because I've used this product for the better part of 6 years without an issue. Once the last cage needs to be cleaned that contains it (the milk snakes) they will be moved to something finer and less irritating.

Also - if you plan on using this for Ball Pythons, please note that you will have to change it VERY frequently if you keep the humidity where they need it. Once this stuff gets a hold of moisture it will mildew! You've been warned America.

My corn snake loves this stuff. This is strand bedding, not flake type aspen. The stands overlap and retain heat very well, as well as allow for tunneling for snakes who want to find an ideal location in the aspen for heat -- something that flake bedding just doesn't do well. I have a 50 gallon cage, and half this bag is what it takes to give me a little over 1 inch of bedding uniformly across the tank, with a little left over to bury hides in a mound of bedding.

It also seems fairly soft enough that it doesn't cause my corn snake's snout much irritation. Corn snakes aren't normally burrowers, but will do so for heat or security, and I've never seen any irritation caused by this stuff.

I don't recommend all ZooMed products, but this one is definitely solid. (Not to mention, it's generally far cheaper to get here on Amazon then in big pet stores).

I use this mixed with coconut husk soil for my ball pythons. Retains moisture very well and is very easy for them to dig through. Nice and cheap too!

Some aspen bedding can be bulky and of poor quality. The Zoo Med brand is excellent, and our little snakes really love it. A quality product indeed.

My DeKay's brown snake was beside himself when I put him in this bedding he spent the better part of a day just burrowing around and popping up out of it. It reminded us so much of the movie Tremors we named him bacon. It doesn't hold a lot of moisture and doesn't seem to mildew even with frequent misting. There is a fairly low amount of dust too.

On the negative, the shavings can have sharp points, make sure your snake isn't sensitive to them. Also, my DeKay eats squishy, moist things like worms and the bedding can stick to them. Make sure your snake doesn't have a hard time separating out the shavings from it's food.

I received it fast, and it was packed well. The bedding is fine and clean. It's a great product. I will probably purchase more in the future. I wonder if they make it darker? UPDATE AS OF 3/13/2012... I received my second order, and I still love it. This is good stuff.

This is the best price you'll find anywhere on this type of aspen bedding. Half a 24 qt bag will cover a 2x3 footprint enclosure to a nice depth. It packs down nicely, which means if you have a digging reptile it will hold burrows and other shapes. I don't know that it will hold enough humidity for reptiles that need high humidity, but it works perfectly well for my ball python and temperate climate North American snake species. The shavings will stick to prey items however; in that case it is best to feed either in another container or at least off a flat plastic surface.

I lay down a couple layers of newspaper before adding the aspen on top; spot cleaning made easy. It can be composted or thrown in the trash.
