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.

well, actually "I" don't love it, but Striker, our striped king snake seems to revel in it. His tongue used to flicker in and out about 15 times a minute,..now he's up to 20-30 flickers a minute, except after a meal,..that's when he kind of shuts down all systems for a day. This is better than the old tried and true shredded newspaper, trust me,..that stuff is hard to clean out, and gets stuck to the glass. With this, we dump the bulk of it in the trash,..the rest--we spray it outside with the hose and let it float down to the neighbor's driveway, where he, no doubt, enjoys driving over the super-luxurious, albeit used, snake bedding on the way to his 9-5.

I got this for my young Western Hognose snake. This is a burrowing species, and this bedding holds tunnels very nicely. He likes to spend lots of time under the bedding. It's soft and clean and not dusty. It's easy to spot soiled bedding and throw it out.

The is a huge amount of bedding for my little snake, too. I bought this 6 months ago and it's still not gone. Very good price - at Petco the same amount of the same brand of the same stuff is like double the price. Very good value here on amazon.

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 this for my corn snake. She loves it. I love it. Sure it's a little messy, but any on the floor vacuums right up. It is so easy to spot clean in the viv. My little girl has tunnels all through this. I'm sure she'd give it two thumbs up if she had thumbs.

This bedding is great for snakes. Our corns love to burrow in it and it's just the right consistency for them! It also is still easy for to clean up the snake feces for our older corn. The younger corn (only about 2 months old and still having the thinner/runnier poops) is harder to clean up after as the poops are easy to miss. Overall, it's much nicer than the paper towels we'd been using before. If you use this, I wouldn't recommend feeding the snake in the enclosure as I've heard they can get impacted bowels from the sawdust.

I have never been disappointed with this Aspen snake bedding. We have a small Western hognose snake who is a burrower. He loves making new tunnels in his terrarium with this bedding. This bedding keeps the terrarium nice and dry, preventing any type of mildew buildup from spilled water or other waste.

We have been using this same Aspen bedding from Zoo Med since we first got our snake. It is recommended to change the bedding every 30-60 days, but if you are cleaning up your pet'pets waste it usually lasts much longer than that. This bedding does not have a strong smell. It is a bit dusty when you first pour it into the terrarium, but it settles almost immediately. Every time we purchase new bedding for our pet, he spends long hours making new tunnels and seems to enjoy it.

We feed our snake in his tank using tongs and have never had any problems with him swallowing any of the bedding. I would just say to always be cautious of this, but we have never had any issues with that.

I highly recommend this Zoo Media aspen snake bedding for anyone who has a burrowing snake set up in a terrarium.

I really like this bedding. However, I underestimated how much I would need for my snake's tank and had to use one whole bag. I was hoping to spread it out between two uses.. Oh well. Still a great bedding. My Ball Python seems to like it and it's not too sharp.
